## Gbit to Mibit Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Gigabit and Mebibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabit is a decimal standard unit where as Mebibit is binary. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Mebibit is equal to 1024^2 bits. There are 0.001048576 Gigabits in one Mebibit.

(Binary Unit)

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

Mibit = Gbit x 10003 / 10242

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabit is Decimal where as the target unit Mebibit 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 1024^2 .

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

FORMULA

Mebibit = Gigabit x 10003 / 10242

STEP 1

Mebibit = Gigabit x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024)

STEP 2

Mebibit = Gigabit x 1000000000 / 1048576

STEP 3

Mebibit = Gigabit x 953.67431640625

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

1. = 1 x 10003 / 10242
2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024)
3. = 1 x 1000000000 / 1048576
4. = 1 x 953.67431640625
5. = 953.67431640625
6. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 953.67431640625 Mibit.

(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 : Mebibit

A Mebibit (Mib or Mibit) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bits and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "mebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "megabit" (Mb). 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.
