Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Gigabits per Second (Gbps) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gbps = kbps ÷ 10002

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Gigabits per Second (Gbps). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Gigabits per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ 10002

STEP 1

Gigabits per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabits per Second = Kilobits per Second ÷ 1000000

STEP 3

Gigabits per Second = Kilobits per Second x (1 ÷ 1000000)

STEP 4

Gigabits per Second = Kilobits per Second x 0.000001

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobits per Second (kbps) to Gigabits per Second (Gbps) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 ÷ 10002
2. = 1 ÷ (1000x1000)
3. = 1 ÷ 1000000
4. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000000)
5. = 1 x 0.000001
6. = 0.000001
7. i.e. 1 kbps is equal to 0.000001 Gbps.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Kilobits per Second to Gigabits per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python, or Powershell.

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Kilobit ?

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a decimal 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.
