blank

1 MB is equal to 1000 KB – under the decimal system / SI / base 10.

1 MB is equal to 1024 KB – under the binary system / base 2. 

How many Kilobytes (KB) in a Megabyte (MB)

1 Megabyte is the equivalent of 1000 kilobytes (in decimal).

1 MB is 103 KB in base 10 (SI).

1 Megabyte is the equivalent of 1024 kilobytes (in binary).

1 MB is 210 KB in base 2.

Difference Between MB and KB

The Megabyte unit symbol is MB. The Kilobyte unit symbol is KB.

A Megabyte is greater than Kilobyte. Megabyte is 1000x times bigger than Kilobyte in base 10 and 1024x bigger in base 2.

Megabytes vs Kilobytes

Megabytes

Megabyte (MB) is a unit of stored or transferred digital information, and is used more extensively in infotech (IT) and consumer technology.

Under the decimal system, one megabyte is the equivalent of 1 million bytes.

But 1 megabyte is used as 220 bytes, which is about 1.05 million bytes (1,048,576 bytes, to be exact).

The amount of digital information represented by megabytes is used for the size of a standard MP3 file, JPEG file, PNG image, and similar smaller file types.

Megabyte in SI and base 10 (decimal)

1 Megabyte = 10002 bytes
1 Megabyte = 1,000,000 bytes

Megabyte in base 2 (binary)

1 Megabyte = 220 bytes
1 Megabyte = 10242 bytes
1 Megabyte = 1,048,576 bytes

Kilobytes

Kilobyte (KB) measures the size of digital information (related to storage or transfer), such as text, sound, and image files. A kilobyte is 1000 bytes long which can be broken down into 1 KB chunks called a Byte – 1 KB=1000 Bytes

In computer science, KB is actually equal to 210 bytes, which makes it equal to 1024 bytes.

Kilobytes are much less common than they once were because their values aren’t as relevant now that data storage capacity has increased so much.

In the old days, the Kilobyte was one of the most popular units of measurement in use. Kilobyte may still be used for certain, specific cases; however, the Gigabyte is now most commonly used. Given the ability to transfer and store information has gone up exponentially, Gigabytes are now more commonly used.

Kilobyte in SI and base 10 (decimal)

1 Kilobyte = 10001 bytes
1 Kilobyte = 1000 bytes

Kilobyte in base 2 (binary)

1 Kilobyte = 210 bytes
1 Kilobyte = 10241 bytes
1 Kilobyte = 1024 bytes

How to Calculate Megabytes to Kilobytes

Converting Megabytes (MB) to Kilobytes (KB) under base 10:

Megabyte in SI

1 Megabyte = 10002 bytes
1KB = 1000 bytes

Therefore:
1 byte = 1000-1 kilobytes

Hence:
1 Megabyte = 10002 * 1000-1 KB
1 Megabyte = 10001 Kilobytes
1 Megabyte = 1000 Kilobytes

Megabytes (MB) to Kilobytes (KB) in Base 2

Converting Megabytes (MB) to Kilobytes (KB) under base 2:

Megabyte in base 2
1 Megabyte = 220 bytes
1 Megabyte = 10242 bytes
1 byte = 1024-1 KB
1 Megabyte = 10242 * 1024-1 KB
1 Megabyte = 10241 Kilobytes
1 Megabyte = 210 Kilobytes
1 Megabyte = 1024 Kilobytes
