kB to Mbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobyte and Megabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Megabit is equal to 1000^2 bits. There are 125 Kilobytes in one Megabit. - view the difference between both units

The formula of converting the Kilobyte to Megabit is represented as follows :

Mbit = kB x 8 / 1000

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Kilobyte to Megabit calculation steps in a simplified manner.

÷ 1000   
x 8   
Kilobyte [kB]
Megabyte [MB]
Megabit [Mbit]
  x 1000  
  ÷ 8  

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobyte (kB) to Megabit (Mbit).

  1. STEP 1 → Megabit = Kilobyte x 8 / 1000
  2. STEP 2 → Megabit = Kilobyte x 0.008

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 kB to Mbit, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x 8 / 1000
  2. = 10 x 0.008
  3. = 0.08
  4. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 0.08 Mbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobyte to Megabit using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

Conversion Units

Definition : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.

Definition : Megabit

A Megabit (Mb or Mbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bits and it is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of mebibit (Mibit) is used instead.
