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.)
