## 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.

## Example Problem

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.
