The best way to understand anything is by taking real-life examples. To understand what a kilobyte is open your PC and search for any document, go on the papers and try to look for the properties of the papers, when we you will find the size of the text, you will see that it is in terms of kilobytes or KB.

## kilobytes to megabits

They are coming on to example for megabits. Mainly megabits are the memory units which are mostly used when we consider the speed of the data; you will find that the rate of data transfer is it megabits per seconds, this means that the data which is transferring is in terms of megabits. Here in this section we will study in brief about kilobytes and megabits and will learn how to convert them.

**What is a kilobyte? **

A kilobyte is the unit of data, which resembles a group of 1024 bytes, or in simple words, a kilobyte is equal to 1024 bytes or a group of 1024 bytes are required to make a kilobyte.

A kilobyte is a higher unit which comes after bytes

**What is a megabit? **

- A megabit is a unit which is considered when we have a bit moderate level of data into consideration. a megabit is the higher unit of data in term of bits, this means that when we have a group of 1000 bits, it will be called as a kilobit, and when we have a group of 1000 kilobits, then we will consider it as a megabit. This means that a megabit is equal to 1024 x 1024 bits.

**Conversion,** after that we have got the bright idea about what is a kilobyte and megabit? Let’s learn how to convert kilobytes to megabits.

One kilobyte = 0.008 megabit
