Enter the slope (degrees) into the Percent Slope From Degrees Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Percent Slope From Degrees. 

Percent Slope From Degrees Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Percent Slope From Degrees. 

PS = tan(s) * 100

  • Where PS is the Percent Slope From Degrees (%)
  • s is the slope (degrees) 

How to Calculate Percent Slope From Degrees?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Percent Slope From Degrees.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the slope (degrees). 
    • The slope (degrees) is given as: 6.
  2. Finally, calculate the Percent Slope From Degrees using the equation above: 

PS = tan(s) * 100

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

PS = tan(6deeg) * 100 = 10.51 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

slope (degrees) = 15

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

PS = tan(s) * 100 = ?
