## YiB to kB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Yobibyte and Kilobyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Yobibyte is a binary standard unit where as Kilobyte is decimal. One Yobibyte is equal to 1024^8 bytes. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.0000000000000000000008271806125530276748 Yobibytes in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Yobibyte (YiB)
Equal to 1024^8 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

kB = YiB x 10248 / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Yobibyte is Binary where as the target unit Kilobyte is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1024^8, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000 .

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

FORMULA

Kilobyte = Yobibyte x 10248 / 1000

STEP 1

Kilobyte = Yobibyte x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / 1000

STEP 2

Kilobyte = Yobibyte x 1208925819614629174706176 / 1000

STEP 3

Kilobyte = Yobibyte x 1208925819614629174706.176

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

1. = 10 x 10248 / 1000
2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / 1000
3. = 10 x 1208925819614629174706176 / 1000
4. = 10 x 1208925819614629174706.176
5. = 12089258196146291747061.76
6. i.e. 10 YiB is equal to 12,089,258,196,146,291,747,061.76 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Yobibyte

A Yobibyte (YiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes (or 9,671,406,556,917,033,397,649,408 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "yibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "yottabyte" (YB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the storage size of high end servers and data storage arrays.

#### 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.
