PB to b - Conversion Formula and Steps

Petabyte and Bit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Petabyte is a decimal unit where as Bit is one of the very basic digital unit. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. There are 0.000000000000000125 Petabytes in one Bit. - view the difference between both units

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Petabyte (PB) to Bit (b).

  1. STEP 1 → Bit = Petabyte x (8x10005)
  2. STEP 2 → Bit = Petabyte x (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
  3. STEP 3 → Bit = Petabyte x 8000000000000000

Example : If we apply the above steps, conversion from 10 PB to Bits, will be processed as below.

  1. = 10 x (8x10005)
  2. = 10 x (8x1000x1000x1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 8000000000000000
  4. = 80000000000000000
  5. i.e. 10 PB is equal to 80,000,000,000,000,000 Bits.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

Conversion Units

Definition : Petabyte

A Petabyte (PB) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes (or 8,000,000,000,000,000 bits) and commonly used to measure the storage capacity of enterprise storage arrays and data centers. It is also used to express data transfer speeds and in the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Pebibyte (PiB) is used instead.

Definition : Bit

A Bit (short for "binary digit") is the basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It is a binary value, meaning it can have one of two values=> 0 or 1. Bits are used to represent data in computers and other electronic devices. They are the building blocks of digital information, and are used to store, transmit, and process data.
