KB is the unit symbol for the ‘Kilobyte‘. A Kilobyte is made up of multiple-unit bytes, which stores the digital information and denotes data size. A byte is a size, which is made up of 8 bits. A bit is a single unit of data. It can be ‘0’ or ‘1’. And the short forms of kilobyte are K, K-byte, and kByte.

In the word kilobyte, kilo denotes the 1000 or third power of 10, which means 103. In computer science and IT, the kilobyte refers to as 1024 or 210 bytes.

A kilobyte is that unit, which is larger than a byte (B) and smaller than the unit megabyte (MB). Kilobyte is used for measuring the size of small files. An electronic mail (e-mail) without the images contains 2 kilobytes.
