Enter the difference in height and the length of the ceiling into the Ceiling Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Ceiling Slope.

## Ceiling Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Ceiling Slope.

CS = tan^-1(CH/CL)

• Where CS is the Ceiling Slope (degrees of slope)
• CH is the difference in height
• CL is the length of the ceiling

## How to Calculate Ceiling Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Ceiling Slope.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the difference in height.
• The difference in height is given as: 400.
2. Next, determine the length of the ceiling.
• The length of the ceiling is provided as: 600.
3. Finally, calculate the Ceiling Slope using the equation above:

CS = tan (CH/CL)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

CS = tan-1 (400/600) = 33.69 (degrees of slope)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

difference in height = 700

length of the ceiling = 1500

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.

CS = tan^-1 (CH/CL) = ?
