Enter the sidewalk rise (in) and the sidewalk run (in) into the Sidewalk Slope Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Sidewalk Slope.

## Sidewalk Slope Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Sidewalk Slope.

SWS = SRI / SRU * 100

- Where SWS is the Sidewalk Slope (%)
- SRI is the sidewalk rise (in)
- SRU is the sidewalk run (in)

To calculate the percentage sidewalk slope, divide the sidewalk rise by the sidewalk run, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Sidewalk Slope?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Sidewalk Slope.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the sidewalk rise (in).
- The sidewalk rise (in) is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the sidewalk run (in).
- The sidewalk run (in) is provided as: 67.

- Finally, calculate the Sidewalk Slope using the equation above:

SWS = SRI / SRU * 100

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

SWS = 5 / 67 * 100 = 7.462 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

sidewalk rise (in) = 50

sidewalk run (in) = 185

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

SWS = SRI / SRU * 100** = ?**
