## KiB to Gbit Formula and Manual Conversion 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.

(Binary Unit)
Gigabit (Gbit)
Equal to 1000^3 bits
(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 see how to manually convert Kibibyte (KiB) to Gigabit (Gbit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Gigabit = Kibibyte x (8x1024) / 10003

STEP 1

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

STEP 2

Gigabit = Kibibyte x 8192 / 1000000000

STEP 3

Gigabit = Kibibyte x 0.000008192

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 100 KiB to Gbit, will be processed as below.

1. = 100 x (8x1024) / 10003
2. = 100 x (8x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 100 x 8192 / 1000000000
4. = 100 x 0.000008192
5. = 0.0008192
6. i.e. 100 KiB is equal to 0.0008192 Gbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Kibibyte

A Kibibyte (KiB) is a binary 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 decimal 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.
