Angular resolution or spatial resolution describes the ability of any image-forming device such as an optical or radio telescope, a microscope, a camera, ... more

The angular resolution may be converted into a spatial resolution,by multiplication of the angle (in radians) with the distance to the object. For a ... more

The resolution R (here measured as a distance, not to be confused with the angular resolution of a previous subsection) depends on the angular aperture ... more

Binoculars, field glasses or binocular telescopes are a pair of identical or mirror-symmetrical telescopes mounted side-by-side and aligned to point ... more

Optical magnification is the ratio between the apparent size of an object (or its size in an image) and its true size, and thus it is a dimensionless ... more

Using the Pythagorean theorem, for 3 different screen resolutions:

Using the Diagonal Resolution from the previous formula we calculate the PPI for 3 corresponding screen sizes :

**Results:**

**10.1** inch tablet screen of resolution **1024×600** : **117.5PPI****21.5** inch PC monitor of **1080p** resolution : **102.46PPI****27** inch PC monitor of **1440p** resolution : **108.78PPI**

Create a new formula
PPI can be calculated from knowing the diagonal size of the screen in inches and the resolution in pixels (width and height). This can be done in two steps
