(Decimal Unit)
Kibibit (Kibit)
Equal to 1024 bits
(Binary Unit)

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

Kibit = Mbit x 10002 / 1024

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Megabit is Decimal where as the target unit Kibibit is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1000^2, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Megabit (Mbit) to Kibibit (Kibit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Kibibit = Megabit x 10002 / 1024


Kibibit = Megabit x (1000x1000) / 1024


Kibibit = Megabit x 1000000 / 1024


Kibibit = Megabit x 976.5625

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

  1. = 10 x 10002 / 1024
  2. = 10 x (1000x1000) / 1024
  3. = 10 x 1000000 / 1024
  4. = 10 x 976.5625
  5. = 9765.625
  6. i.e. 10 Mbit is equal to 9,765.625 Kibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Definition : Kibibit

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobit" (Kb) and 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.
