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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Pbit = GB x 8 ÷ 10002

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


Petabits = Gigabytes x 8 ÷ 10002


Petabits = Gigabytes x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)


Petabits = Gigabytes x 8 ÷ 1000000


Petabits = Gigabytes x 0.000008


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

  1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 10002
  2. = 1 x 8 ÷ (1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000000
  4. = 1 x 0.000008
  5. = 0.000008
  6. i.e. 1 GB is equal to 0.000008 Pbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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