Bits (b) to Kilobits (kb) calculator

Input the amount of bits you want to convert to kilobits in the below input field, and then click in the "Convert" button. But if you want to convert from kilobits to bits, please checkout this tool.

Formula

Formula used to convert b to kb:

F(x) = x / 1000

For example, if you want to convert 15 b to kb, just replace x by 15 [b]:

15 b = 15/1000 = 0.015 kb

Steps

1. Divide the amount of bits by 1000.
2. The result will be expressed in kilobits.

A bit is the basic unit of measurement used in computing (for example, in data storage), digital communications (for example, express the amount of information sent) and information theory. The name bit is a portmanteau of binary digit. The symbol used to represent a bit is b.

As a binary digit, the bit represents a logical value (having only one of two values). It may be physically implemented as a two-state machine. It can be represented as either 0 or 1, true or false, + or -, yes or no, on or of, etc.

A kilobit is a unit of measurement for digital information and computer storage. The prefix kilo (which is expressed with the letter k) is defined in the International System of Units (SI) as a multiplier of 10^3 (1 thousand). Therefore, 1 kilobit is equal to 1,000 bits. The symbol commonly used to represent a kilobit is kb (sometimes as kbit). However, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) recommends the symbol kbit instead of kb.

Many people think that 1 kilobit is equal to 1024 bits. This is wrong because is contrary to international standards. The only unit used to represent 1024 bits is a kibibit.
