## kbps to Gibit/Minute - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobit and Gibibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Kilobit is a decimal standard unit where as Gibibit is binary. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. One Gibibit is equal to 1024^3 bits. There are 1,073,741.824 Kilobits in one Gibibit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Kilobit (kbit)
Equal to 1000 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Gibibit (Gibit)
Equal to 1024^3 bits
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobits Per Second to Gibibits Per Minute is represented as follows :

Gibit/Minute = kbps x 1000 / 10243 x 60

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Kilobit is Decimal where as the target unit Gibibit 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 1024^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobits Per Second (kbps) to Gibibits Per Minute (Gibit/Minute). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Gibibits Per Minute = Kilobits Per Second x 1000 / 10243 x 60

STEP 1

Gibibits Per Minute = Kilobits Per Second x 1000 / (1024x1024x1024) x 60

STEP 2

Gibibits Per Minute = Kilobits Per Second x 1000 / 1073741824 x 60

STEP 3

Gibibits Per Minute = Kilobits Per Second x 0.000000931322574615478515625 x 60

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 kbps to Gibit/Minute, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 x 1000 / 10243 x 60
2. = 10 x 1000 / (1024x1024x1024) x 60
3. = 10 x 1000 / 1073741824 x 60
4. = 10 x 0.000000931322574615478515625 x 60
5. = 0.000558793544769287109375
6. i.e. 10 kbps is equal to 0.000558793544769287109375 Gibit/Minute.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Kilobits Per Second to Gibibits Per Minute 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 : Gibibit

A Gibibit (Gib or Gibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 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 "gigabit" (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.
