## bps to GiB/Hour - Conversion Formula and Steps

Bit and Gibibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Bit is one of the very basic digital unit where as Gibibyte is a binary unit. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. There are 8,589,934,592 Bits in one Gibibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

The formula of converting the Bits Per Second to Gibibytes Per Hour is represented as follows :

GiB/Hour = bps / (8x10243) x 60 x 60

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bits Per Second (bps) to Gibibytes Per Hour (GiB/Hour). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gibibytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second / (8x10243) x 60 x 60

STEP 1

Gibibytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second / (8x1024x1024x1024) x 60 x 60

STEP 2

Gibibytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second / 8589934592 x 60 x 60

STEP 3

Gibibytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second x (1 / 8589934592) x 60 x 60

STEP 4

Gibibytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second x 0.000000000116415321826934814453125 x 60 x 60

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 bps to GiB/Hour, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / (8x10243) x 60 x 60
2. = 10 / (8x1024x1024x1024) x 60 x 60
3. = 10 / 8589934592 x 60 x 60
4. = 10 x (1 / 8589934592) x 60 x 60
5. = 10 x 0.000000000116415321826934814453125 x 60 x 60
6. = 0.0000041909515857696533203125
7. i.e. 10 bps is equal to 0.0000041909515857696533203125 GiB/Hour.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bits Per Second to Gibibytes Per Hour using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.

#### Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes (or 8,589,934,592 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "gibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "gigabyte" (GB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.

### Python Code for bps to GiB/Hour Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bits Per Second to Gibibytes Per Hour in Python.

bitsPerSecond = int(input("Enter Bits Per Second: "))
gibibytesPerHour = bitsPerSecond / (8*1024*1024*1024) * 60 * 60
print("{} Bits Per Second = {} Gibibytes Per Hour".format(bitsPerSecond,gibibytesPerHour))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Bits Per Second as an input. The value of Gibibytes Per Hour is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
