## B to GiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Byte and Gibibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Byte is one of the very basic digital unit where as Gibibyte is a binary unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. There are 1,073,741,824 Bytes in one Gibibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Byte (B) to Gibibyte (GiB).

1. STEP 1 → Gibibyte = Byte / 10243
2. STEP 2 → Gibibyte = Byte / (1024x1024x1024)
3. STEP 3 → Gibibyte = Byte / 1073741824
4. STEP 4 → Gibibyte = Byte x (1 / 1073741824)
5. STEP 5 → Gibibyte = Byte x 0.000000000931322574615478515625

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 Byte to GiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / 10243
2. = 10 / (1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 / 1073741824
4. = 10 x (1 / 1073741824)
5. = 10 x 0.000000000931322574615478515625
6. = 0.00000000931322574615478515625
7. i.e. 10 Byte is equal to 0.00000000931322574615478515625 GiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Byte to Gibibyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Byte

A Byte is a unit of digital information that typically consists of 8 bits and can represent a wide range of values such as characters, binary data and it is widely used in the digital world to measure the data size and data transfer speed.

#### 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.
