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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Pbit = kB x 8 ÷ 10004

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

FORMULA

Petabits = Kilobytes x 8 ÷ 10004

STEP 1

Petabits = Kilobytes x 8 ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabits = Kilobytes x 8 ÷ 1000000000000

STEP 3

Petabits = Kilobytes x 0.000000000008

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

1. = 1 x 8 ÷ 10004
2. = 1 x 8 ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 1 x 8 ÷ 1000000000000
4. = 1 x 0.000000000008
5. = 0.000000000008
6. i.e. 1 kB is equal to 0.000000000008 Pbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Kilobyte ?

A Kilobyte (kB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bytes (or 8,000 bits) and commonly used to express the size of a file or the amount of memory used by a program. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of kibibyte (KiB) is used instead.
