width and length of the ipad 2 screen (cm)?

Does any body know the width and length of the ipad 2 screen in cm?

On the Apple website they have it, though that's the width and length of the actual ipad itself. For display they have 9.7-inch (diagonal), how would you work out the rest, plus its in inches.

Cheers

from the Apple site:

Size and Weight1


Height: 9.50 inches (241.2 mm)
Width: 7.31 inches (185.7 mm)
Depth: 0.34 inch (8.8 mm)
Weight: 1.33 pounds (601 g)


now subtract approximately 18cm for the bezel.

The screen has a standard 3-4 ratio (a 3-4-5 triangle).

Therefore,
width = 3/5 x 9.7 = 5.82 in = 14.78 cm
height = 4/5 x 9.7 = 7.76 = 19.71 cm

Confirmed to the resolution of my ruler by measuring my iPad 1.
