## KiB to GB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kibibyte and Gigabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kibibyte is a binary standard unit where as Gigabyte is decimal. One Kibibyte is equal to 1024 bytes. One Gigabyte is equal to 1000^3 bytes. There are 976,562.5 Kibibytes in one Gigabyte.

Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kibibyte (KiB)
Equal to 1024 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Gigabyte (GB)
Equal to 1000^3 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

GB = KiB x 1024 / 10003

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kibibyte is Binary where as the target unit Gigabyte is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - 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 Kibibyte (KiB) to Gigabyte (GB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gigabyte = Kibibyte x 1024 / 10003

STEP 1

Gigabyte = Kibibyte x 1024 / (1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabyte = Kibibyte x 1024 / 1000000000

STEP 3

Gigabyte = Kibibyte x 0.000001024

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 3 KiB to GB, will be processed as below.

1. = 3 x 1024 / 10003
2. = 3 x 1024 / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 3 x 1024 / 1000000000
4. = 3 x 0.000001024
5. = 0.000003072
6. i.e. 3 KiB is equal to 0.000003072 GB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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 : 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.
