## GiB to b - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gibibyte and Bit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gibibyte is a binary unit where as Bit is one of the very basic digital unit. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. There are 0.000000000116415321826934814453125 Gibibytes in one Bit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gibibyte (GiB) to Bit (b).

1. STEP 1 → Bit = Gibibyte x (8x10243)
2. STEP 2 → Bit = Gibibyte x (8x1024x1024x1024)
3. STEP 3 → Bit = Gibibyte x 8589934592

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

1. = 10 x (8x10243)
2. = 10 x (8x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 8589934592
4. = 85899345920
5. i.e. 10 GiB is equal to 85,899,345,920 Bits.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a 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.

#### Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.
