## MiB to kbit Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Mebibyte and Kilobit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Mebibyte is a binary standard unit where as Kilobit is decimal. One Mebibyte is equal to 1024^2 bytes. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. There are 0.00011920928955078125 Mebibytes in one Kilobit. Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Mebibyte (MiB)
Equal to 1024^2 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Mebibyte to Kilobit is represented as follows :

kbit = MiB x (8x10242) / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Mebibyte is Binary where as the target unit Kilobit is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 8x1024^2, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Mebibyte (MiB) to Kilobit (kbit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Kilobit = Mebibyte x (8x10242) / 1000

STEP 1

Kilobit = Mebibyte x (8x1024x1024) / 1000

STEP 2

Kilobit = Mebibyte x 8388608 / 1000

STEP 3

Kilobit = Mebibyte x 8388.608

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 MiB to kbit will be processed as below.

1. = 1 x (8x10242) / 1000
2. = 1 x (8x1024x1024) / 1000
3. = 1 x 8388608 / 1000
4. = 1 x 8388.608
5. = 8388.608
6. i.e. 1 MiB is equal to 8,388.608 kbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Mebibyte

A Mebibyte (MiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bytes (or 8,388,608 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "mebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "megabyte" (MB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. 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 Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.
