Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Pebibyte (PiB) to Gibibyte (GiB) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA GiB = PiB x 10242

Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Pebibyte (PiB) to Gibibyte (GiB). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.

FORMULA

Gibibytes = Pebibytes x 10242

STEP 1

Gibibytes = Pebibytes x (1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibytes = Pebibytes x 1048576

Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Pebibyte (PiB) to Gibibyte (GiB) can be processed as outlined below.

1. = 1 x 10242
2. = 1 x (1024x1024)
3. = 1 x 1048576
4. = 1,048,576
5. i.e. 1 PiB is equal to 1,048,576 GiB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

### Unit Definitions

#### What is Pebibyte ?
