## Bit/Minute to PBps - Conversion Formula and Steps

Bit and Petabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Bit is one of the very basic digital unit where as Petabyte is a decimal unit. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. There are 8,000,000,000,000,000 Bits in one Petabyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

The formula of converting the Bits Per Minute to Petabytes Per Second is represented as follows :

PBps = Bit/Minute / (8x10005) / 60

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bits Per Minute (b/Minute) to Petabytes Per Second (PBps). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Petabytes Per Second = Bits Per Minute / (8x10005) / 60

STEP 1

Petabytes Per Second = Bits Per Minute / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / 60

STEP 2

Petabytes Per Second = Bits Per Minute / 8000000000000000 / 60

STEP 3

Petabytes Per Second = Bits Per Minute x (1 / 8000000000000000) / 60

STEP 4

Petabytes Per Second = Bits Per Minute x 0.000000000000000125 / 60

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 Bit/Minute to PBps, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / (8x10005) / 60
2. = 10 / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / 60
3. = 10 / 8000000000000000 / 60
4. = 10 x (1 / 8000000000000000) / 60
5. = 10 x 0.000000000000000125 / 60
6. = 0.0000000000000000208333333333333333333333
7. i.e. 10 Bit/Minute is equal to 0.0000000000000000208333333333333333333333 PBps.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bits Per Minute to Petabytes Per Second using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.

#### Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.

#### Definition : Petabyte

A Petabyte (PB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of enterprise storage arrays and data centers. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Pebibyte (PiB) is used instead.

### Python Code for Bit/Minute to PBps Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bits Per Minute to Petabytes Per Second in Python.

bitsPerMinute = int(input("Enter Bits Per Minute: "))
petabytesPerSecond = bitsPerMinute / (8*1000*1000*1000*1000*1000) / 60
print("{} Bits Per Minute = {} Petabytes Per Second".format(bitsPerMinute,petabytesPerSecond))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Bits Per Minute as an input. The value of Petabytes Per Second is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
