Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Bit (b) to Petabyte (PB) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA PB = Bit ÷ (8x10005)

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Bit (b) to Petabyte (PB). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Petabytes = Bits ÷ (8x10005)

STEP 1

Petabytes = Bits ÷ (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabytes = Bits ÷ 8000000000000000

STEP 3

Petabytes = Bits x (1 ÷ 8000000000000000)

STEP 4

Petabytes = Bits x 0.000000000000000125

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Bit (b) to Petabyte (PB) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 ÷ (8x10005)
2. = 1 ÷ (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 1 ÷ 8000000000000000
4. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8000000000000000)
5. = 1 x 0.000000000000000125
6. = 0.000000000000000125
7. i.e. 1 Bit is equal to 0.000000000000000125 PB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is 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.

#### What is Petabyte ?

A Petabyte (PB) is a decimal 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.

## Excel Formula to convert from Bit (b) to Petabyte (PB)

## Python Code for Bit (b) to Petabyte (PB) Conversion

You can use below code to convert any value in Bit (b) to Bit (b) in Python.

bits = int(input("Enter Bits: "))
petabytes = bits / (8*1000*1000*1000*1000*1000)
print("{} Bits = {} Petabytes".format(bits,petabytes))

The first line of code will prompt the user to enter the Bit (b) as an input. The value of Petabyte (PB) is calculated on the next line, and the code in third line will display the result.
