The formula of converting the Kilobyte to Gigabyte is represented as follows :

GB = kB / 10002

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobyte (kB) to Gigabyte (GB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Gigabyte = Kilobyte / 10002

STEP 1

Gigabyte = Kilobyte / (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabyte = Kilobyte / 1000000

STEP 3

Gigabyte = Kilobyte x (1 / 1000000)

STEP 4

Gigabyte = Kilobyte x 0.000001

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 kB to GB, will be processed as 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.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : 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.

#### Definition : Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Gibibyte (GiB) is used instead.
