## PiB to GB Formula and Manual Conversion Steps

Pebibyte and Gigabyte are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Pebibyte is a binary standard unit where as Gigabyte is decimal. One Pebibyte is equal to 1024^5 bytes. One Gigabyte is equal to 1000^3 bytes. There are 0.0000008881784197001252323389053344726562 Pebibytes in one Gigabyte.

(Binary Unit)
Gigabyte (GB)
Equal to 1000^3 bytes
(Decimal Unit)

The formula of converting the Pebibyte to Gigabyte is represented as follows :

GB = PiB x 10245 / 10003

Note : Here we are converting the units between different standards. The source unit Pebibyte is Binary where as the target unit Gigabyte is Decimal. In such scenario, first we need to convert the source unit to the basic unit - Byte - multiply with 1024^5, and then convert to target unit by dividing with 1000^3 .

Now let us apply the above formula and see how to manually convert Pebibyte (PiB) to Gigabyte (GB). We can further simplify the formula to ease the calculation.

FORMULA

Gigabyte = Pebibyte x 10245 / 10003

STEP 1

Gigabyte = Pebibyte x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Gigabyte = Pebibyte x 1125899906842624 / 1000000000

STEP 3

Gigabyte = Pebibyte x 1125899.906842624

If we apply the above Formula and steps, conversion from 1 PiB to GB, will be processed as below.

1. = 1 x 10245 / 10003
2. = 1 x (1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) / (1000x1000x1000)
3. = 1 x 1125899906842624 / 1000000000
4. = 1 x 1125899.906842624
5. = 1125899.906842624
6. i.e. 1 PiB is equal to 1,125,899.906842624 GB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

#### Definition : Pebibyte

A Pebibyte (PiB) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1,125,899,906,842,624 bytes (or 9,007,199,254,740,992 bits) and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "pebi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "petabyte" (PB). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the storage size of high end servers and data storage arrays.

#### Definition : Gigabyte

A Gigabyte (GB) is a decimal unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of computer hard drives, flash drives, and other digital storage devices. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Gibibyte (GiB) is used instead.
