PB to kbit - Conversion Formula and Steps

Petabyte and Kilobit are units of digital information used to measure storage capacity and data transfer rate. Both are decimal units. One Petabyte is equal to 1000^5 bytes. One Kilobit is equal to 1000 bits. There are 0.000000000000125 Petabytes in one Kilobit. - view the difference between both units

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

kbit = PB x (8x10004)

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


Kilobit = Petabyte x (8x10004)


Kilobit = Petabyte x (8x1000x1000x1000x1000)


Kilobit = Petabyte x 8000000000000

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

  1. = 10 x (8x10004)
  2. = 10 x (8x1000x1000x1000x1000)
  3. = 10 x 8000000000000
  4. = 80000000000000
  5. i.e. 10 PB is equal to 80,000,000,000,000 kbit.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

You can use above formula and steps to convert Petabyte to Kilobit 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 : Kilobit

A Kilobit (kb or kbit) is a unit of digital information that is equal to 1000 bits. It is commonly used to express data transfer speeds, such as the speed of an internet connection and to measure the size of a file. In the context of data storage and memory, the binary-based unit of Kibibit (Kibit) is used instead.
