## B to Gbit Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Byte and Gigabit 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 Gigabit is a decimal unit. One Byte is equal to 8 bits. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. There are 125,000,000 Bytes in one Gigabit.

(Basic Unit)
Gigabit (Gbit)
Equal to 1000^3 bits
(Decimal Unit)

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

Gbit = Byte x 8 / 10003

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

FORMULA

Gigabit = Byte x 8 / 10003

STEP 1

Gigabit = Byte x 8 / (1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabit = Byte x 8 / 1000000000

STEP 3

Gigabit = Byte x 0.000000008

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 5 Byte to Gbit, will be processed as below.

1. = 5 x 8 / 10003
2. = 5 x 8 / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 5 x 8 / 1000000000
4. = 5 x 0.000000008
5. = 0.00000004
6. i.e. 5 Byte is equal to 0.00000004 Gbit.

(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 : Gigabit

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bits and it is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of gibibit (Gibit) is used instead.
