Geometry question
11 months ago

For a set diagonal distance of a rectangle (let's say 12), which length and height combination to create that rectangle, will yield the largest area?

IOW, to bring this to photography, if a lens covers a certain diagonal, what shape/ratio sensor will maximize the number of megapixels that fit on the sensor and still have the same diagonal?
