Enter the width in pixels and the width in micrometers into the calculator to determine the resolution.

Resolution Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a resolution.

R = Wp/ Wum

  • Where R is the resolution (pixels/micrometer)
  • Wp is the width in pixels
  • Wum is the width in micrometers

Resolution Definition

A resolution is defined as the density of pixels within a screen.

Resolution Example

How to calculate a resolution.

  1. First, determine the number of pixels.

    Measure the total number of pixels across the screen.

  2. Next, determine the width in micro meters.

    Measure the total width of the screen in micro meters.

  3. Finally, calculate the resolution.

    Use the formula above to calculate the resolution.
