## kB to MB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobyte and Megabyte 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 Megabyte is equal to 1000^2 bytes. There are 1,000 Kilobytes in one Megabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

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

MB = kB / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobyte (kB) to Megabyte (MB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Megabyte = Kilobyte / 1000

STEP 1

Megabyte = Kilobyte x (1 / 1000)

STEP 2

Megabyte = Kilobyte x 0.001

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

1. = 10 / 1000
2. = 10 x (1 / 1000)
3. = 10 x 0.001
4. = 0.01
5. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 0.01 MB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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 : Megabyte

A Megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 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 mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
