Yes, the size of a pixel is 0x0. Note that this definition works for all units of distance: 0cm x 0cm, 0 inches x 0 inches, 0 miles x 0 miles, etc. I assume you're asking whether there is a standard separation between pixels. The other answers deal with that question quite well, so I'll use this space to belabour my pedantic point instead ;) A pixel is a ...

The other answers have already covered the fact that there might be different sizes of pixels. However, the question was (emphasis mine): So does Pixel have a standard size? There is, in a way, a "standard" of 96 pixels per inch in Windows. This is what led to the creation of DIP which "assumes" 96 DPI (as mentioned in the link).

Pixels per inch is essentially the digital equivilent of dots per inch - its an arbitrary measurement that lets you know how sharp an image is. A pixel itself isn't 'standard' on a modern LCD screens - there's different arrangements of 'subpixels' that make up colours, like rgb lcds, which consist of equal red green and blue sub pixels, rgbw, which adds a ...

In this case [*] is the inch that has a fixed size of 2,54 cm. The dimension of the pixels can vary. The PPI is the number of pixel that you can count in one inch of your device. I think that sometimes a picture is more effective of 100 words. Read more from the source of this figure. In the picture above the left one has a number of PPI less (10) then ...

No. Way back in the (multisync CRT) day, we had monitors of the same size and resolution with different dot pitches (pixel sizes). Dot pitches (sizes) were sometimes so large that they overlapped and made for slightly fuzzy looking pictures, so smaller pixels (even at the same resolution) were generally preferred.

The other answers are missing the point here. To quote from Wikipedia, In digital imaging, a pixel, pel, dots or picture element is a physical point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable element in an all points addressable display device. There is no a priori restriction on the physical size of a pixel. I've used devices with 500 µm2 ...

There are two different but linked concepts of pixel: The classic (physical) one, which is the basic unit of a display, the smallest dot that a screen can turn off and on, generally composed by three colors (RGB). But as it vary a lot from one device to other, when you want to show anything of a certain size in different devices ti becomes complicated: 500 ...

The size of a pixel varies by device. For example a 24" monitor running 1024x768 has bigger pixels than a 20" monitor running the same resolution. The pixel is the smallest dot that can be turned on or off (or given a colour). The higher the resolution (more pixels) for a given display size, the smaller the dots (pixels) and the finer the detail that can ...

It sounds like the screen itself is bust, the state of the plastic casing is more or less irrelevant so long as it isn't pointed inwards. A screen replacement for an HP pavilion laptop should cost no more than £50 / $70 usd, plus the actual cost of installing the new screen, though you can do that yourself with a few tools and an online guide. As for if it'...
