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

Kibit = GiB x (8x10242)

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

FORMULA

Kibibit = Gibibyte x (8x10242)

STEP 1

Kibibit = Gibibyte x (8x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Kibibit = Gibibyte x 8388608

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

1. = 10 x (8x10242)
2. = 10 x (8x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 8388608
4. = 83886080
5. i.e. 10 GiB is equal to 83,886,080 Kibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobit" (Kb) and 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.
