## PB to kB - Conversion Formula and Steps

Petabyte and Kilobyte 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 Kilobyte is equal to 1000 bytes. There are 0.000000000001 Petabytes in one Kilobyte. - view the difference between both units Source Data UnitTarget Data Unit

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

kB = PB x 10004

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

FORMULA

Kilobyte = Petabyte x 10004

STEP 1

Kilobyte = Petabyte x (1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Kilobyte = Petabyte x 1000000000000

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

1. = 10 x 10004
2. = 10 x (1000x1000x1000x1000)
3. = 10 x 1000000000000
4. = 10000000000000
5. i.e. 10 PB is equal to 10,000,000,000,000 kB.

(Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.)

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

#### 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 : Kilobyte

A Kilobyte (kB) is a 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.
