The image above represents resolution x-rays.

To compute for resolution x-rays, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Average Height of Voltage Pulse (V)** and **Spread of Voltage Pulse (δv).**

The formula for calculating resolution x-rays:

R% = 100 (^{√(δv)}/_{V})

Where:

R% = Resolution X-rays

V = Average Height of Voltage Pulse

δv = Spread of Voltage Pulse

Let’s solve an example;

Find the resolution x-rays when the average height of voltage pulse is 21 and the spread of voltage pulse is 10.

This implies that;

V = Average Height of Voltage Pulse = 21

δv = Spread of Voltage Pulse = 10

R% = 100 (^{√(δv)}/_{V})

R% = 100 (^{√(10)}/_{21})

R% = 100 (^{3.162}/_{21})

R% = 100 (0.15)

R% = 15.05

Therefore, the **resolution x-rays **is **15.05%.**

**Calculating the Average Height of Voltage Pulse when the Resolution X-rays and the Spread of Voltage Pulse is Given.**

V = ^{100 x √(δv)} / _{R%}

Where;

V = Average Height of Voltage Pulse

R% = Resolution X-rays

δv = Spread of Voltage Pulse

Let’s solve an example;

Find the average height of voltage pulse when the resolution x-rays is 40 and the spread of voltage pulse is 4.

This implies that;

R% = Resolution X-rays = 40

δv = Spread of Voltage Pulse = 4

V = ^{100 x √(δv)} / _{R%}

V = ^{100 x √(4)} / _{40}

V = ^{100 x 2} / _{40}

V = ^{200} / _{40}

V = 5

Therefore, the **average height of voltage pulse **is **5.**
