## Gbit to KiB Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Gigabit and Kibibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabit is a decimal standard unit where as Kibibyte is binary. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. There are 0.000008192 Gigabits in one Kibibyte.

(Binary Unit)

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

KiB = Gbit x 10003 / (8x1024)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabit is Decimal where as the target unit Kibibyte 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 8x1024 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Gigabit (Gbit) to Kibibyte (KiB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Kibibyte = Gigabit x 10003 / (8x1024)

STEP 1

Kibibyte = Gigabit x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024)

STEP 2

Kibibyte = Gigabit x 1000000000 / 8192

STEP 3

Kibibyte = Gigabit x 122070.3125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Gbit to KiB, will be processed as below.

1. = 1 x 10003 / (8x1024)
2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024)
3. = 1 x 1000000000 / 8192
4. = 1 x 122070.3125
5. = 122070.3125
6. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 122,070.3125 KiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : 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.

#### Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). 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.
