## bps to PB/Hour - 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
Bit (b)

(Decimal Unit)

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

PB/Hour = bps / (8x10005) x 60 x 60

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Bit to Petabyte calculation steps in a simplified manner.

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bits Per Second (bps) to Petabytes Per Hour (PB/Hour).

1. STEP 1 → Petabytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second / (8x10005) x 60 x 60
2. STEP 2 → Petabytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) x 60 x 60
3. STEP 3 → Petabytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second / 8000000000000000 x 60 x 60
4. STEP 4 → Petabytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second x (1 / 8000000000000000) x 60 x 60
5. STEP 5 → Petabytes Per Hour = Bits Per Second x 0.000000000000000125 x 60 x 60

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 bps to PB/Hour, will be processed as below.

1. = 10 / (8x10005) x 60 x 60
2. = 10 / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) x 60 x 60
3. = 10 / 8000000000000000 x 60 x 60
4. = 10 x (1 / 8000000000000000) x 60 x 60
5. = 10 x 0.000000000000000125 x 60 x 60
6. = 0.0000000000045
7. i.e. 10 bps is equal to 0.0000000000045 PB/Hour.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Bits Per Second to Petabytes Per Hour 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 bps to PB/Hour Conversion

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

bitsPerSecond = int(input("Enter Bits Per Second: "))
petabytesPerHour = bitsPerSecond / (8*1000*1000*1000*1000*1000) * 60 * 60
print("{} Bits Per Second = {} Petabytes Per Hour".format(bitsPerSecond,petabytesPerHour))

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