Enter the ground clearance (in) and the wheel base (in) into the Breakover Angle Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Breakover Angle.

## Breakover Angle Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Breakover Angle.

BA = 2* atan ( 2*GC / WB)

Variables:

- BA is the Breakover Angle (degrees)
- GC is the ground clearance (in)
- WB is the wheel base (in)

To calculate a breakover angle, multiply the ground clearance by 2, divide by the wheel base, take the inverse tangent of this result, then finally, multiply by 2.

## How to Calculate Breakover Angle?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Breakover Angle.

- First, determine the ground clearance (in).
- Next, determine the wheel base (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = BA = 2* atan ( 2*GC / WB).
- Finally, calculate the Breakover Angle.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

ground clearance (in) = 20

wheel base (in) = 60

BA = 2* atan ( 2*GC / WB)** **= ?
