## b to PB - 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.

The formula of converting the Bit to Petabyte is represented as follows :

PB = Bit / (8x10005)

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Bit (b) to Petabyte (PB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Petabyte = Bit / (8x10005)

STEP 1

Petabyte = Bit / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabyte = Bit / 8000000000000000

STEP 3

Petabyte = Bit x (1 / 8000000000000000)

STEP 4

Petabyte = Bit x 0.000000000000000125

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Bit to PB, will be processed as 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.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### 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.
