## Gbit to YiB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Gigabit and Yobibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabit is a decimal standard unit where as Yobibyte is binary. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. One Yobibyte is equal to 1024^8 bytes. There are 9,671,406,556,917,033.397649408 Gigabits in one Yobibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

Yobibyte (YiB)
Equal to 1024^8 bytes
(Binary Unit)

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

YiB = Gbit x 10003 / (8x10248)

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

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabit (Gbit) to Yobibyte (YiB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Yobibyte = Gigabit x 10003 / (8x10248)

STEP 1

Yobibyte = Gigabit x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Yobibyte = Gigabit x 1000000000 / 9671406556917033397649408

STEP 3

Yobibyte = Gigabit x 0.000000000000000103397576569128459358926

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

1. = 10 x 10003 / (8x10248)
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000) / (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000 / 9671406556917033397649408
4. = 10 x 0.000000000000000103397576569128459358926
5. = 0.00000000000000103397576569128459358926
6. i.e. 10 Gbit is equal to 0.00000000000000103397576569128459358926 YiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Gigabit to Yobibyte 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 : Yobibyte

A Yobibyte (YiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes (or 9,671,406,556,917,033,397,649,408 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "yibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "yottabyte" (YB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the storage size of high end servers and data storage arrays.
