(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Gigabyte to Gibibit is represented as follows :

Gibit = GB x (8x10003) / 10243

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabyte is Decimal where as the target unit Gibibit is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 8x1000^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1024^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabyte (GB) to Gibibit (Gibit).

  1. STEP 1 → Gibibit = Gigabyte x (8x10003) / 10243
  2. STEP 2 → Gibibit = Gigabyte x (8x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024)
  3. STEP 3 → Gibibit = Gigabyte x 8000000000 / 1073741824
  4. STEP 4 → Gibibit = Gigabyte x 7.450580596923828125

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

  1. = 10 x (8x10003) / 10243
  2. = 10 x (8x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024)
  3. = 10 x 8000000000 / 1073741824
  4. = 10 x 7.450580596923828125
  5. = 74.50580596923828125
  6. i.e. 10 GB is equal to 74.50580596923828125 Gibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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