## kbit/Hour to GiB/Hour - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobit and Gibibyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobit is a decimal standard unit where as Gibibyte is binary. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Gibibyte is equal to 1024^3 bytes. There are 8,589,934.592 Kilobits in one Gibibyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Gibibyte (GiB)
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobits Per Hour to Gibibytes Per Hour is represented as follows :

GiB/Hour = kbit/Hour x 1000 / (8x10243)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobit is Decimal where as the target unit Gibibyte is Binary. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1000, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 8x1024^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobits Per Hour (kbit/Hour) to Gibibytes Per Hour (GiB/Hour). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gibibytes Per Hour = Kilobits Per Hour x 1000 / (8x10243)

STEP 1

Gibibytes Per Hour = Kilobits Per Hour x 1000 / (8x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibytes Per Hour = Kilobits Per Hour x 1000 / 8589934592

STEP 3

Gibibytes Per Hour = Kilobits Per Hour x 0.000000116415321826934814453125

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 kbit/Hour to GiB/Hour, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 x 1000 / (8x10243)
2. = 10 x 1000 / (8x1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000 / 8589934592
4. = 10 x 0.000000116415321826934814453125
5. = 0.00000116415321826934814453125
6. i.e. 10 kbit/Hour is equal to 0.00000116415321826934814453125 GiB/Hour.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobits Per Hour to Gibibytes Per Hour using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. 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 Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.

#### Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes (or 8,589,934,592 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "gibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "gigabyte" (GB). 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.
