## GiB to Gbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gibibyte and Gigabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Gigabit is decimal. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. There are 0.116415321826934814453125 Gibibytes in one Gigabit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

(Decimal Unit)

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

Gbit = GiB x (8x10243) / 10003

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibyte is Binary where as the target unit Gigabit is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 8x1024^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gibibyte (GiB) to Gigabit (Gbit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gigabit = Gibibyte x (8x10243) / 10003

STEP 1

Gigabit = Gibibyte x (8x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabit = Gibibyte x 8589934592 / 1000000000

STEP 3

Gigabit = Gibibyte x 8.589934592

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

1. = 10 x (8x10243) / 10003
2. = 10 x (8x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 8589934592 / 1000000000
4. = 10 x 8.589934592
5. = 85.89934592
6. i.e. 10 GiB is equal to 85.89934592 Gbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Gibibyte to Gigabit 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 : Gigabit

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a 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.
