Enter the ramp height (ft) and the ramp angle (degrees) into the Ramp Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Ramp Length.

## Ramp Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Ramp Length.

RL = H / SIN(a)

• Where RL is the Ramp Length (ft)
• H is the ramp height (ft)
• a is the ramp angle (degrees)

## How to Calculate Ramp Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Ramp Length.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the ramp height (ft).
• The ramp height (ft) is given as: 4.
2. Next, determine the ramp angle (degrees).
• The ramp angle (degrees) is provided as: 30.
3. Finally, calculate the Ramp Length using the equation above:

RL = H / SIN(a)

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

RL = 4 / SIN(30deg) = 8.00 (ft)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

ramp height (ft) = 6

ramp angle (degrees) = 45
