The formula of converting the Gibibit to Kibibyte is represented as follows :

KiB = Gibit x 10242 / 8

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Gibibit to Kibibyte calculation steps in a simplified manner.

x 1024
÷ 8

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gibibit (Gibit) to Kibibyte (KiB).

1. STEP 1 → Kibibyte = Gibibit x 10242 / 8
2. STEP 2 → Kibibyte = Gibibit x (1024x1024) / 8
3. STEP 3 → Kibibyte = Gibibit x 1048576 / 8
4. STEP 4 → Kibibyte = Gibibit x 131072

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

1. = 10 x 10242 / 8
2. = 10 x (1024x1024) / 8
3. = 10 x 1048576 / 8
4. = 10 x 131072
5. = 1310720
6. i.e. 10 Gibit is equal to 1,310,720 KiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Gibibit

A Gibibit (Gib or Gibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 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 "gigabit" (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.

#### Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). 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.
