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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA PB = Gbit ÷ (8x10002)

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

FORMULA

Petabytes = Gigabits ÷ (8x10002)

STEP 1

Petabytes = Gigabits ÷ (8x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabytes = Gigabits ÷ 8000000

STEP 3

Petabytes = Gigabits x (1 ÷ 8000000)

STEP 4

Petabytes = Gigabits x 0.000000125

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

1. = 1 ÷ (8x10002)
2. = 1 ÷ (8x1000x1000)
3. = 1 ÷ 8000000
4. = 1 x (1 ÷ 8000000)
5. = 1 x 0.000000125
6. = 0.000000125
7. i.e. 1 Gbit is equal to 0.000000125 PB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

You can employ the formula and steps mentioned above to convert Gigabits to Petabytes 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.
