Gbit to Kibit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gigabit and Kibibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabit is a decimal standard unit where as Kibibit is binary. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Kibibit is equal to 1024 bits. There are 0.000001024 Gigabits in one Kibibit. - view the difference between both units

(Binary Unit)

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

Kibit = Gbit x 10003 / 1024

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabit is Decimal where as the target unit Kibibit is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1000^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabit (Gbit) to Kibibit (Kibit).

  1. STEP 1 → Kibibit = Gigabit x 10003 / 1024
  2. STEP 2 → Kibibit = Gigabit x (1000x1000x1000) / 1024
  3. STEP 3 → Kibibit = Gigabit x 1000000000 / 1024
  4. STEP 4 → Kibibit = Gigabit x 976562.5

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

  1. = 10 x 10003 / 1024
  2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000) / 1024
  3. = 10 x 1000000000 / 1024
  4. = 10 x 976562.5
  5. = 9765625
  6. i.e. 10 Gbit is equal to 9,765,625 Kibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

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.

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.
