Based on the provided diagram and steps outlined earlier, the formula for converting the Petabyte (PB) to Exabyte (EB) can be expressed as follows:


Now, let's apply the aforementioned formula and explore the manual conversion process from Petabyte (PB) to Exabyte (EB). To streamline the calculation further, we can simplify the formula for added convenience.


Exabytes = Petabytes ÷ 1000


Exabytes = Petabytes x (1 ÷ 1000)


Exabytes = Petabytes x 0.001


Example : By applying the previously mentioned formula and steps, the conversion from 1 Petabyte (PB) to Exabyte (EB) can be processed as outlined below.

  1. = 1 ÷ 1000
  2. = 1 x (1 ÷ 1000)
  3. = 1 x 0.001
  4. = 0.001
  5. i.e. 1 PB is equal to 0.001 EB.

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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