## Pbit to Gibit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Petabit and Gibibit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Petabit is a decimal standard unit where as Gibibit is binary. One Petabit is equal to 1000^5 bits. One Gibibit is equal to 1024^3 bits. There are 0.000001073741824 Petabits in one Gibibit. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit
Petabit (Pbit)
Equal to 1000^5 bits
(Decimal Unit)
Gibibit (Gibit)
Equal to 1024^3 bits
(Binary Unit)

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

Gibit = Pbit x 10005 / 10243

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

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

FORMULA

Gibibit = Petabit x 10005 / 10243

STEP 1

Gibibit = Petabit x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024)

STEP 2

Gibibit = Petabit x 1000000000000000 / 1073741824

STEP 3

Gibibit = Petabit x 931322.574615478515625

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

1. = 10 x 10005 / 10243
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000x1000x1000) / (1024x1024x1024)
3. = 10 x 1000000000000000 / 1073741824
4. = 10 x 931322.574615478515625
5. = 9313225.74615478515625
6. i.e. 10 Pbit is equal to 9,313,225.74615478515625 Gibit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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.

#### Definition : Gibibit

A Gibibit (Gib or Gibit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,073,741,824 bits and is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC). The prefix "gibi" is derived from the binary number system and it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based "gigabit" (Gb). It is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.
