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


Kilobytes = Petabits x 10004 ÷ 8


Kilobytes = Petabits x (1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ 8


Kilobytes = Petabits x 1000000000000 ÷ 8


Kilobytes = Petabits x 125000000000


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

  1. = 1 x 10004 ÷ 8
  2. = 1 x (1000x1000x1000x1000) ÷ 8
  3. = 1 x 1000000000000 ÷ 8
  4. = 1 x 125000000000
  5. = 125,000,000,000
  6. i.e. 1 Pbit is equal to 125,000,000,000 kB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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

Unit Definitions


A Petabit (Pb or Pbit) is a decimal 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.

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.
