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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA PB = Byte ÷ 10005

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

FORMULA

Petabytes = Bytes ÷ 10005

STEP 1

Petabytes = Bytes ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabytes = Bytes ÷ 1000000000000000

STEP 3

Petabytes = Bytes x (1 ÷ 1000000000000000)

STEP 4

Petabytes = Bytes x 0.000000000000001

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

1. = 1 ÷ 10005
2. = 1 ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 1 ÷ 1000000000000000
4. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000000000000000)
5. = 1 x 0.000000000000001
6. = 0.000000000000001
7. i.e. 1 Byte is equal to 0.000000000000001 PB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

#### 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.
