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)

To calculate the percent slope, multiply the tangent of the slope by 100.

## How to Calculate Percent Slope From Degrees?

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

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the slope (degrees).
- The slope (degrees) is given as: 6.

- 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 (%)
