Equal to 1000^5 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Gibibyte to Petabit is represented as follows :

Pbit = GiB x (8x10243) / 10005

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Gibibyte is Binary where as the target unit Petabit is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 8x1024^3, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^5 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Gibibyte (GiB) to Petabit (Pbit). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.


Petabit = Gibibyte x (8x10243) / 10005


Petabit = Gibibyte x (8x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)


Petabit = Gibibyte x 8589934592 / 1000000000000000


Petabit = Gibibyte x 0.000008589934592

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

  1. = 10 x (8x10243) / 10005
  2. = 10 x (8x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 8589934592 / 1000000000000000
  4. = 10 x 0.000008589934592
  5. = 0.00008589934592
  6. i.e. 10 GiB is equal to 0.00008589934592 Pbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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