## Gigabit (Gbit) to Byte (B) Conversion - Formula & Steps

The Gbit to Byte Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data units from Gigabit (Gbit) to Byte (B). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Gigabit) and target (Byte) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1000^3 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Equal to 8 bits
(Basic Unit)

The formula for converting the Gigabit (Gbit) to Byte (B) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Byte = Gbit x 10003 ÷ 8

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Gigabit (Gbit) to Byte (B). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Bytes = Gigabits x 10003 ÷ 8

STEP 1

Bytes = Gigabits x (1000x1000x1000) ÷ 8

STEP 2

Bytes = Gigabits x 1000000000 ÷ 8

STEP 3

Bytes = Gigabits x 125000000

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Gigabit (Gbit) to Byte (B) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x 10003 ÷ 8
2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000) ÷ 8
3. = 1 x 1000000000 ÷ 8
4. = 1 x 125000000
5. = 125,000,000
6. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 125,000,000 Byte.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Gigabits to Bytes using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Gigabit ?

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal 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.
