# Aspect ratio calculator

### Enter width and height

Aspect Ratio (short: A/R) is the width of an image or screen, divided by the height. In landscape orientation, the A/R is > 1, for portrait orientation the A/R is < 1 and for square screens, this is = 1.

### Calculation

• Size = `1998` x `1080` = `2.16` megapixels
• Aspect ratio = `1.85`
• Angle of diagonal = 0.496 rad = 28.4°
• Length of diagonal = 2272 pixels
