Gibit to kB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gibibit and Kilobyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gibibit is a binary standard unit where as Kilobyte is decimal. One Gibibit is equal to 1024^3 bits. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.000007450580596923828125 Gibibits in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units

Kilobyte (kB)
Equal to 1000 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

kB = Gibit x 10243 / (8x1000)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibit is Binary where as the target unit Kilobyte 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 8x1000 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gibibit (Gibit) to Kilobyte (kB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Kilobyte = Gibibit x 10243 / (8x1000)


Kilobyte = Gibibit x (1024x1024x1024) / (8x1000)


Kilobyte = Gibibit x 1073741824 / 8000


Kilobyte = Gibibit x 134217.728

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

  1. = 10 x 10243 / (8x1000)
  2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024) / (8x1000)
  3. = 10 x 1073741824 / 8000
  4. = 10 x 134217.728
  5. = 1342177.28
  6. i.e. 10 Gibit is equal to 1,342,177.28 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Gibibit to Kilobyte 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 : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
