What does KB mean?

The smallest unit of memory measurement that is also larger than a byte is called a kilobyte. A kilobyte, abbreviated as K or KB is 103 or 1000 bytes. It predates the megabyte, which has one million bytes. Since a kilobyte is exactly 1024 bytes and a kilobyte is actually 1000 bytes, the two terms are frequently used interchangeably. Most frequently the size of small files is expressed in kilobytes. A simple text document, for instance, might have a file size of 10 kilobytes and contain 10 KB of data. Small websites frequently have graphics that are between 5KB and 100KB in size.
