KiB to Gbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibyte and Gigabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Gigabit is decimal. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Gigabit is equal to 1000^3 bits. There are 122,070.3125 Kibibytes in one Gigabit. - view the difference between both units

(Decimal Unit)

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

Gbit = KiB x (8x1024) / 10003

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte 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 - Byte - multiply with 8x1024, 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 Kibibyte (KiB) to Gigabit (Gbit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Gigabit = Kibibyte x (8x1024) / 10003


Gigabit = Kibibyte x (8x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)


Gigabit = Kibibyte x 8192 / 1000000000


Gigabit = Kibibyte x 0.000008192

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

  1. = 10 x (8x1024) / 10003
  2. = 10 x (8x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 8192 / 1000000000
  4. = 10 x 0.000008192
  5. = 0.00008192
  6. i.e. 10 KiB is equal to 0.00008192 Gbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bytes (or 8,192 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "kibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "kilobyte" (KB). 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.

Python Code for KiB to Gbit Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kibibyte to Gigabit in Python.

kibibyte = int(input("Enter Kibibyte: "))
gigabit = kibibyte * (8*1024) / (1000*1000*1000)
print("{} Kibibyte = {} Gigabit".format(kibibyte,gigabit))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Kibibyte as an input. The value of Gigabit is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
