(Decimal Unit)

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

PB = Gibit x 10243 / (8x10005)

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibit is Binary where as the target unit Petabyte is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Bit - multiply with 1024^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 8x1000^5 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Gibibit (Gibit) to Petabyte (PB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Petabyte = Gibibit x 10243 / (8x10005)


Petabyte = Gibibit x (1024x1024x1024) / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)


Petabyte = Gibibit x 1073741824 / 8000000000000000


Petabyte = Gibibit x 0.000000134217728

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 10 Gibit to PB, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x 10243 / (8x10005)
  2. = 10 x (1024x1024x1024) / (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 1073741824 / 8000000000000000
  4. = 10 x 0.000000134217728
  5. = 0.00000134217728
  6. i.e. 10 Gibit is equal to 0.00000134217728 PB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Gibibit to Petabyte using any of the programming language such as Java, Python or Powershell.
