Distance Angle Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the distance from an angle.
D = H / sin(a)
- Where D is the distance
- H is the height
- a is the angle
Distance Angle Definition
What is a distance angle? Distance angle commonly refers to the horizontal distance of an angle that reaches a certain height, which in turn forms a triangle. In other words, the distance created by the angle.
How to calculate a distance angle?
- First, determine the angle.
For this example, the angle is found to be 35 deg.
- Next, determine the height.
Measuring the height we find the total length of the height to be 40 ft.
- Finally, calculate the distance.
Using the formula, divide the height by the sin of the angle. D = 40 / sin(35)= 69.73.
About Distances and Angles
Does distance affect angle? Changing a distance will affect the corresponding angle. If a distance is increased, but the height is kept the same, then the angle will decrease. Conversely, if the distance is decreased, the angle will increase.
