Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Kilobyte (kB) to Petabyte (PB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Petabytes = Kilobytes ÷ 10004

STEP 1

Petabytes = Kilobytes ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Petabytes = Kilobytes ÷ 1000000000000

STEP 3

Petabytes = Kilobytes x (1 ÷ 1000000000000)

STEP 4

Petabytes = Kilobytes x 0.000000000001

Example : If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 Kilobyte (kB) to Petabyte (PB) will be processed as below.

1. = 1 ÷ 10004
2. = 1 ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 1 ÷ 1000000000000
4. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000000000000)
5. = 1 x 0.000000000001
6. = 0.000000000001
7. i.e. 1 kB is equal to 0.000000000001 PB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### 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.
