(Decimal Unit)

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

kbit = Gibit x 10243 / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibit is Binary where as the target unit Kilobit is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1024^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000 .

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

  1. STEP 1 → Kilobit = Gibibit x 10243 / 1000
  2. STEP 2 → Kilobit = Gibibit x (1024x1024x1024) / 1000
  3. STEP 3 → Kilobit = Gibibit x 1073741824 / 1000
  4. STEP 4 → Kilobit = Gibibit x 1073741.824

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

  1. = 10 x 10243 / 1000
  2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024) / 1000
  3. = 10 x 1073741824 / 1000
  4. = 10 x 1073741.824
  5. = 10737418.24
  6. i.e. 10 Gibit is equal to 10,737,418.24 kbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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