GB to MiB - Conversion Formula and 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 comparison between both units

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Gigabyte (GB)
Equal to 1000^3 bytes
(Decimal Unit)
Mebibyte (MiB)
Equal to 1024^2 bytes
(Binary Unit)

Use the below formula to convert from Gigabyte to Mebibyte.

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 .

Follow below steps to convert from Gigabyte (GB) to Mebibyte (MiB).

  1. STEP 1 → Mebibyte = Gigabyte x 10003 / 10242
  2. STEP 2 → Mebibyte = Gigabyte x (1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024)
  3. STEP 3 → Mebibyte = Gigabyte x 1000000000 / 1048576
  4. STEP 4 → Mebibyte = Gigabyte x 953.67431640625

Example : Detailed conversion steps from 10 GB to MiB, will look like 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 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 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.
