GiB to kB Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Gibibyte and Kilobyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Kilobyte is decimal. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.000000931322574615478515625 Gibibytes in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units

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

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

kB = GiB x 10243 / 1000

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 1024^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Gibibyte (GiB) to Kilobyte (kB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Kilobyte = Gibibyte x 10243 / 1000


Kilobyte = Gibibyte x (1024x1024x1024) / 1000


Kilobyte = Gibibyte x 1073741824 / 1000


Kilobyte = Gibibyte x 1073741.824

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 GiB to kB, 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 GiB is equal to 10,737,418.24 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a binary 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.
