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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA GB = kB ÷ 10002

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

FORMULA

Gigabytes = Kilobytes ÷ 10002

STEP 1

Gigabytes = Kilobytes ÷ (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabytes = Kilobytes ÷ 1000000

STEP 3

Gigabytes = Kilobytes x (1 ÷ 1000000)

STEP 4

Gigabytes = Kilobytes x 0.000001

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Kilobyte (kB) to Gigabyte (GB) 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 kB is equal to 0.000001 GB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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