Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Kilobyte (kB) to Gigabit (Gbit) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Gbit = kB x 8 ÷ 10002

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Kilobyte (kB) to Gigabit (Gbit). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Gigabits = Kilobytes x 8 ÷ 10002


Gigabits = Kilobytes x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)


Gigabits = Kilobytes x 8 ÷ 1000000


Gigabits = Kilobytes x 0.000008


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobyte (kB) to Gigabit (Gbit) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 10002
  2. = 1 x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000000
  4. = 1 x 0.000008
  5. = 0.000008
  6. i.e. 1 kB is equal to 0.000008 Gbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions

What is Kilobyte ?

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
