B to GiB Formula and Manual Conversion 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.

The formula of converting the Byte to Gibibyte is represented as follows :

GiB = Byte / 10243

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Byte (B) to Gibibyte (GiB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Gibibyte = Byte / 10243

STEP 1

Gibibyte = Byte / (1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibyte = Byte / 1073741824

STEP 3

Gibibyte = Byte x (1 / 1073741824)

STEP 4

Gibibyte = Byte x 0.000000000931322574615478515625

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 500 Byte to GiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 500 / 10243
2. = 500 / (1024x1024x1024)
3. = 500 / 1073741824
4. = 500 x (1 / 1073741824)
5. = 500 x 0.000000000931322574615478515625
6. = 0.0000004656612873077392578125
7. i.e. 500 Byte is equal to 0.0000004656612873077392578125 GiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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 binary 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 Byte to GiB Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Byte to Gibibyte in Python.

byte = int(input("Enter Byte: "))
gibibyte = byte / (1024*1024*1024)
print("{} Byte = {} Gibibyte".format(byte,gibibyte))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Byte as an input. The value of Gibibyte is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
