Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Gigabit (Gbit) to Petabit (Pbit) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Pbit = Gbit ÷ 10002

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Gigabit (Gbit) to Petabit (Pbit). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Petabits = Gigabits ÷ 10002

STEP 1

Petabits = Gigabits ÷ (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabits = Gigabits ÷ 1000000

STEP 3

Petabits = Gigabits x (1 ÷ 1000000)

STEP 4

Petabits = Gigabits x 0.000001

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Gigabit (Gbit) to Petabit (Pbit) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 ÷ 10002
2. = 1 ÷ (1000x1000)
3. = 1 ÷ 1000000
4. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000000)
5. = 1 x 0.000001
6. = 0.000001
7. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 0.000001 Pbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Gigabit ?

A Gigabit (Gb or Gbit) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bits and it is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of gibibit (Gibit) is used instead.
