The formula of converting the Petabyte to Exabyte is represented as follows :

EB = PB / 1000

Now let us apply the above formula and, write down the steps to convert from Petabyte (PB) to Exabyte (EB). This way, we can try to simplify and reduce to an easy to apply formula.


Exabyte = Petabyte / 1000


Exabyte = Petabyte x (1 / 1000)


Exabyte = Petabyte x 0.001

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

  1. = 10 / 1000
  2. = 10 x (1 / 1000)
  3. = 10 x 0.001
  4. = 0.01
  5. i.e. 10 PB is equal to 0.01 EB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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