Kb one thousand twenty four bytes. see byte and
Kbps ( kilobits per second ) A measure
(the amount of data that can flow in a given time). Kbps is
defined as the number of bits per second ( in thousands ) that can
be transmitted over the specified data transmission medium.
kHz (kilohertz) abbreviated kHz
or KHz*, kilohertz is a unit used to measure
the frequency of alternating current (AC)
or an electromagnetic (EM) wave. It is defined as one thousand
hertz (One thousand (1,000) cycles per second).
( Note: * The engineer's society,
IEEE, and most other
sources prefer "kHz" to "KHz." This apparently makes it less likely
that users will confuse "kilo" (decimal 1,000) with the computer "K"
kilo- Abbreviated k (always lower-case). A
prefix signifying one thousand (10E3).
Kilo- Abbreviated K (always upper-case). A
prefix used in computer work to signify multiples of 1024 (i.e.,
2E10). Meant to distinguish base-2 (binary) from base-10 (decimal)
magnitudes. For example, a "16K" memory is actually 16,384
bits (i.e., 16 times 1024, or 2E14).
