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

Pbit = GB x 8 / 10002

Below conversion diagram will help you to visualize the Gigabyte to Petabit calculation steps in a simplified manner.

Petabit [Pbit]
  x 1000  
  x 1000  
  ÷ 8  

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Gigabyte (GB) to Petabit (Pbit).

  1. STEP 1 → Petabit = Gigabyte x 8 / 10002
  2. STEP 2 → Petabit = Gigabyte x 8 / (1000x1000)
  3. STEP 3 → Petabit = Gigabyte x 8 / 1000000
  4. STEP 4 → Petabit = Gigabyte x 0.000008

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

  1. = 10 x 8 / 10002
  2. = 10 x 8 / (1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 8 / 1000000
  4. = 10 x 0.000008
  5. = 0.00008
  6. i.e. 10 GB is equal to 0.00008 Pbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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