What is Aspect Ratio

The aspect ratio of a shape is the ratio of its longer dimension to its shorter dimension. It may be applied to two characteristic dimensions of a three-dimensional shape, such as the ratio of the longest and shortest axis, or for symmetrical objects that are described by just two measurements, such as the length and diameter of a rod. The aspect ratio of a torus is the ratio of the major axis R to the minor axis.

Types of Aspect Ratio

There are multiple types of aspect ratios which are all used for different purposes. For example:

*4:3 is used for many computer monitors and older, non-widescreen televisions.

*1:1 is an uncommon square-format aspect ratio occasionally used in photography.

*5:4 is a computer monitor resolution, now more commonly used in mobile telephone cameras.

*16:9 is the aspect ratio used for High Definition television, as well as movies.

*14:9 is a compromise aspect ratio used to create a picture acceptable to both 4:3 and 16:9 televisions.

*16:10 is utilized in the majority of widescreen computer monitors.
