## kB to Pbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Kilobyte and Petabit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. One Petabit is equal to 1000^5 bits. There are 125,000,000,000 Kilobytes in one Petabit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

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

Pbit = kB x 8 / 10004

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Kilobyte (kB) to Petabit (Pbit). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.

FORMULA

Petabit = Kilobyte x 8 / 10004

STEP 1

Petabit = Kilobyte x 8 / (1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabit = Kilobyte x 8 / 1000000000000

STEP 3

Petabit = Kilobyte x 0.000000000008

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

1. = 10 x 8 / 10004
2. = 10 x 8 / (1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 8 / 1000000000000
4. = 10 x 0.000000000008
5. = 0.00000000008
6. i.e. 10 kB is equal to 0.00000000008 Pbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### Definition : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a 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.

#### Definition : Petabit

A Petabit (Pb or Pbit) is a unit of measurement for digital information transfer rate. It is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 (one quadrillion) bits. It is commonly used to measure the speed of data transfer over computer networks, such as internet connection speeds.
