Enter the channel height (ft) and the channel length (ft) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Channel Slope.

## Channel Slope Formula

CS = CH / CL

Variables:

- CS is the Channel Slope (ft/ft)
- CH is the channel height (ft)
- CL is the channel length (ft)

To calculate Channel Slope, divide the channel height by the channel length.

## How to Calculate Channel Slope?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Channel Slope.

- First, determine the channel height (ft).
- Next, determine the channel length (ft).
- Next, gather the formula from above = CS = CH / CL.
- Finally, calculate the Channel Slope.
- 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.

channel height (ft) = 30

channel length (ft) = 150
