## kbit to GiB Formula and Manual Conversion 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.

Gibibyte (GiB)
Equal to 1024^3 bytes
(Binary Unit)

The formula of converting the Kilobit to Gibibyte is represented as follows :

GiB = kbit 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 see how to manually convert Kilobit (kbit) to Gibibyte (GiB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Gibibyte = Kilobit x 1000 / (8x10243)

STEP 1

Gibibyte = Kilobit x 1000 / (8x1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibyte = Kilobit x 1000 / 8589934592

STEP 3

Gibibyte = Kilobit x 0.000000116415321826934814453125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 kbit to GiB, will be processed as below.

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

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : 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.

#### Definition : Gibibyte

A Gibibyte (GiB) is a binary 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.

### Python Code for kbit to GiB Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Kilobit to Gibibyte in Python.

kilobit = int(input("Enter Kilobit: "))
gibibyte = kilobit * 1000 / (8*1024*1024*1024)
print("{} Kilobit = {} Gibibyte".format(kilobit,gibibyte))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Kilobit as an input. The value of Gibibyte is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
