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

FORMULA

Petabytes = Gigabytes ÷ 10002

STEP 1

Petabytes = Gigabytes ÷ (1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabytes = Gigabytes ÷ 1000000

STEP 3

Petabytes = Gigabytes x (1 ÷ 1000000)

STEP 4

Petabytes = Gigabytes x 0.000001

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Gigabyte (GB) to Petabyte (PB) 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 GB is equal to 0.000001 PB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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