## GiB to MB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gibibyte and Megabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Megabyte is decimal. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. One Megabyte is equal to 1000^2 bytes. There are 0.000931322574615478515625 Gibibytes in one Megabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Gibibyte (GiB)
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Megabyte (MB)
Equal to 1000^2 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

MB = GiB x 10243 / 10002

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibyte is Binary where as the target unit Megabyte 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 1000^2 .

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

1. STEP 1 → Megabyte = Gibibyte x 10243 / 10002
2. STEP 2 → Megabyte = Gibibyte x (1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000)
3. STEP 3 → Megabyte = Gibibyte x 1073741824 / 1000000
4. STEP 4 → Megabyte = Gibibyte x 1073.741824

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

1. = 10 x 10243 / 10002
2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1073741824 / 1000000
4. = 10 x 1073.741824
5. = 10737.41824
6. i.e. 10 GiB is equal to 10,737.41824 MB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

A Megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000 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 mebibyte (MiB) is used instead.
