(Decimal Unit)

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

Gbit = Kibit x 1024 / 10003

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibit is Binary where as the target unit Gigabit is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1024, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^3 .

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


Gigabit = Kibibit x 1024 / 10003


Gigabit = Kibibit x 1024 / (1000x1000x1000)


Gigabit = Kibibit x 1024 / 1000000000


Gigabit = Kibibit x 0.000001024

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

  1. = 10 x 1024 / 10003
  2. = 10 x 1024 / (1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 1024 / 1000000000
  4. = 10 x 0.000001024
  5. = 0.00001024
  6. i.e. 10 Kibit is equal to 0.00001024 Gbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Definition : Kibibit

A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobit" (Kb) and 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.

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.
