## YiB to GB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Yobibyte and Gigabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Yobibyte is a binary standard unit where as Gigabyte is decimal. One Yobibyte is equal to 1024^8 bytes. One Gigabyte is equal to 1000^3 bytes. There are 0.0000000000000008271806125530276748714086 Yobibytes in one Gigabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Yobibyte (YiB)
Equal to 1024^8 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Gigabyte (GB)
Equal to 1000^3 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

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

GB = YiB x 10248 / 10003

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Yobibyte is Binary where as the target unit Gigabyte is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1024^8, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Yobibyte (YiB) to Gigabyte (GB).

1. STEP 1 → Gigabyte = Yobibyte x 10248 / 10003
2. STEP 2 → Gigabyte = Yobibyte x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)
3. STEP 3 → Gigabyte = Yobibyte x 1208925819614629174706176 / 1000000000
4. STEP 4 → Gigabyte = Yobibyte x 1208925819614629.174706176

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 YiB to GB, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 x 10248 / 10003
2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1208925819614629174706176 / 1000000000
4. = 10 x 1208925819614629.174706176
5. = 12089258196146291.74706176
6. i.e. 10 YiB is equal to 12,089,258,196,146,291.74706176 GB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Yobibyte to Gigabyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Yobibyte

A Yobibyte (YiB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes (or 9,671,406,556,917,033,397,649,408 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "yibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "yottabyte" (YB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the storage size of high end servers and data storage arrays.

#### Definition : Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a 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.
