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

diamond CONVERSION FORMULA kB = PB x 10004

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

FORMULA

Kilobytes = Petabytes x 10004

STEP 1

Kilobytes = Petabytes x (1000x1000x1000x1000)

STEP 2

Kilobytes = Petabytes x 1000000000000

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

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

Note : Result rounded off to 40 decimal positions.

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