## GB to MiB Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Gigabyte and Mebibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Gigabyte is a decimal standard unit where as Mebibyte is binary. One Gigabyte is equal to 1000^3 bytes. One Mebibyte is equal to 1024^2 bytes. There are 0.001048576 Gigabytes in one Mebibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

Mebibyte (MiB)
Equal to 1024^2 bytes
(Binary Unit)

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

MiB = GB x 10003 / 10242

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gigabyte is Decimal where as the target unit Mebibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - 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 Gigabyte (GB) to Mebibyte (MiB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Mebibyte = Gigabyte x 10003 / 10242

STEP 1

Mebibyte = Gigabyte x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024)

STEP 2

Mebibyte = Gigabyte x 1000000000 / 1048576

STEP 3

Mebibyte = Gigabyte x 953.67431640625

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

1. = 10 x 10003 / 10242
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000 / 1048576
4. = 10 x 953.67431640625
5. = 9536.7431640625
6. i.e. 10 GB is equal to 9,536.7431640625 MiB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Gibibyte (GiB) is used instead.

#### Definition : Mebibyte

A Mebibyte (MiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,048,576 bytes (or 8,388,608 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 "megabyte" (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.
