# Slope Calculator

If we talk about the angle of slope which can be worked out using the Slope Calculator, then we can mean a range of various things whose angle of the slope can found. For example, the angle of the driveway, the pitch of a roof, the angle of a hill etc.

Carrying out the slope calculations can be very helpful in different situations that range from making sure that the water flow runs exactly off a particular surface. Also, tension, friction and energy can be reduced as well, if some heavy objects are moved using a ramp.

It is important to understand what is a slope. A Slope can be referred to as a piece of ground that has a specific slant, which is also called a "Grade".

There are 4 different ways of that are used to specify the slope. They are: the angle of inclination, percentage, per mille and it can also be expressed as a ratio.

Caution: The ratio is determined to be "1 in n" which is different to the mathematical "1:n".

The Gradient Calculator may be another online program that may interest you.

Slope Calculator

Terminology Value Explanation
Angle of Inclination The angle opposite the "Rise" side of a triangle with a right angle between vertical "Rise" and horizontal "Run"
Percentage The relation ship between "Rise" and "Run" expressed as a percentage
Per Mille The tangent of the angle of inclination times 1000
Ratio The ratio is determined to be "1 in n" which is different to the mathematical "1 : n"

You may set the number of decimal places in the online calculator. By default there are only two decimal places.

### Some basic information about the Slope Calculator

The Slope Calculator is apt of carrying out mathematical operations with the following algorithms:

• Slope Length is the square root of (Rise squared plus Run squared)
• Angle of Inclination is the tangent of (Rise devided by Run)
• Percentage is 100 multiplied by (Rise devided by Run)
• Per Mille is 1000 multiplied by (Rise devided by Run)
• Ratio is 1 to (Run devided by Rise)
