Enter the total drop in distance (ft) and the total length of the land (ft) into the Land Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Land Slope.

## Land Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Land Slope.

LS = D / L * 100

• Where LS is the Land Slope (%)
• D is the total drop in distance (ft)
• L is the total length of the land (ft)

## How to Calculate Land Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Land Slope.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total drop in distance (ft).
• The total drop in distance (ft) is given as: 5.
2. Next, determine the total length of the land (ft).
• The total length of the land (ft) is provided as: 75.
3. Finally, calculate the Land Slope using the equation above:

LS = D / L * 100

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

LS = 5 / 75 * 100 = 6.66 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total drop in distance (ft) = 8

total length of the land (ft) = 100

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

LS = D / L * 100 = ?
