The PiB to Pbit Calculator Tool provides a convenient solution for effortlessly converting data units from Pebibyte (PiB) to Petabit (Pbit). Let's delve into a thorough analysis of the formula and steps involved.

Outlined below is a comprehensive overview of the key attributes associated with both the source (Pebibyte) and target (Petabit) data units.

Source Data Unit Target Data Unit
Equal to 1024^5 bytes
(Binary Unit)
Equal to 1000^5 bits
(Decimal Unit)

The formula for converting the Pebibyte (PiB) to Petabit (Pbit) can be expressed as follows:

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA Pbit = PiB x (8x10245) ÷ 10005

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


Petabits = Pebibytes x (8x10245) ÷ 10005


Petabits = Pebibytes x (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)


Petabits = Pebibytes x 9007199254740992 ÷ 1000000000000000


Petabits = Pebibytes x 9.007199254740992


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

  1. = 1 x (8x10245) ÷ 10005
  2. = 1 x (8x1024x1024x1024x1024x1024) ÷ (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 1 x 9007199254740992 ÷ 1000000000000000
  4. = 1 x 9.007199254740992
  5. = 9.007199254740992
  6. i.e. 1 PiB is equal to 9.007199254740992 Pbit.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions

What is 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.
