Bytes (B) to Kilobytes (kB) calculator

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


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


  1. Divide the amount of bytes by 1000.
  2. The result will be expressed in kilobytes.

About Bytes (B)

A byte is a unit of digital information that represents eight (8) bits. It is widely used in computing and in digital communications. The symbol used to represent a byte is B (upper-case letter B). It was designated by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The amount of bits that a byte represent changed over the years, but nowadays a byte represents 8 bits. With 1 byte you can represent numbers from 0 to 255.

About Kilobytes (kB)

A kilobyte 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 kilobyte is equal to 1,000 bytes. The symbol used to represent a kilobyte is kB.

Many people think that 1 kilobyte is equal to 1024 bytes. This is wrong because is contrary to international standards. The only unit used to represent 1024 bytes is a kibibyte.
