Enter the total height of slope and the total slope into the Length of Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Length of Slope.

## Length of Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Length of Slope.

LOS = H / S
• Where LOS is the Length of Slope (length)
• H is the total height of slope
• s is the total slope

## How to Calculate Length of Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Length of Slope.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total height of slope.
• The total height of slope is given as: 300.
2. Next, determine the total slope.
• The total slope is provided as: 2.
3. Finally, calculate the Length of Slope using the equation above:

LOS = H / S

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

LOS = 300 / 2 = 150 (length)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total height of slope = 100

total slope = 4

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

LOS = H / S = ?
