Kilobit (Kb) is a unit in the category of Data (Binary). This unit is commonly used in the Computer unit system. Kilobit (Kb) has a dimension of nil (data) where L is length, T is time, N is amount of substance, and I is electric current. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit bit by multiplying its value by a factor of 1000.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Data (Binary) include Bit (bit, b), Byte (B), Gigabinarybit (gibibit) (Gib), Gigabinarybyte (gibibyte) (GiB), Gigabit (Gb), Gigabyte (GB), Kilobinarybit (kibibit) (Kib), Kilobinarybyte (kibibyte) (KiB), Kilobyte (KB), Megabinarybit (mebibit) (Mib), Megabinarybyte (mebibyte) (MiB), Megabit (Mb), Megabyte (MB), Terabinarybit (tebibit) (Tib), Terabinarybyte (tebibyte) (TiB), Terabit (Tb), and Terabyte (TB).
