    If by format you mean erase then only a itunes restore will do it.

    If you want to take it back to factory you can go to settings - General - Reset - Erase All Content and Settings on the iPad.

    You can do the homeland reset that thetoothfairy referred to, but if a full format is what you are looking for I highly recommend putting your device into DFU mode and doing an iTunes restore. The difference between restoring with DFU/non-DFU is simple. A DFU restore removes the operating system from the device and flashes the device again it for a clean install. A non-DFU restore simply resets the settings back to default.

    He probably wants us to give him step by step how to do it.....

    Plug the iPad into your computer
    Launch iTunes
    Hold down the Power button and the Home button at the same time
    Keep holding both of these buttons for 10 seconds
    After 10 seconds pass, release the Power button but continue to hold the Home button for another 3-5 seconds
    When in DFU mode, your iPad screen will stay completely black. If you see an Apple logo or otherwise you did not enter DFU mode
    iTunes will notify you that it has detected a device in recovery mode, ignore this message if you plan on jailbreaking
    Once in DFU mode your jailbreak or firmware modifying app should take over, so follow those instructions from here on
