Kilobits and kilobytes both are the units which are used in the whole world for measurement of memory. Here in this section, we will first consider the difference between a bit and a byte.

## kilobits to kilobytes

After that, we will find the concept of kilobits and kilobytes.

**What is the difference between bits and bytes? **

Bits and the bytes are the units which are used for the measuring data. data can be measured either in terms of bit or byte, at a microscopic scale when digital data are considered For that purpose let’s think, a bit is the smallest unit of data, which can have either 0 value or 1 value, or we can say that it can be on or it can be off.

One byte equal to 8 bits, that is when we consider a set of 8 bits, we can call this set as a byte. Now after that, we have understood what a bit is? And what is a byte then?

**What is a kilobyte? **

- A kilobyte is that unit of data which is a successor of byte unit. Here consider that one kilobyte is equal to 1024 bytes of data. That means that of 1024 bytes together forms kilobytes.
- A kilobyte is that small unit of data but, is a high unit, the docs files are generally in terms of kilobytes.

** What is Kilobits? **

- Kilobits are the units which are to consider as a successor of bits, here the bits is the smallest unit of data. One kilobit has 1024 bits; this means that when we find a set of 1024 bits, we can call it as one byte.

**Conversion,** given equation, can be used to convert kilobyte to kilobits.

**One kilobit = 0.125 kilobytes.**
