This tool calculates the angle of a ramp for you based on its height and length, making construction planning easier.

## Ramp Angle Calculator

This calculator helps you determine the angle of a ramp given its length and height. Simply input the ramp length and height in meters, then click “Calculate” to find the angle in degrees.

### How to Use:

- Enter the ramp length in meters in the first input field.
- Enter the ramp height in meters in the second input field.
- Click the “Calculate” button to obtain the angle of the ramp in degrees.
- The result will be displayed in the “Result” field below the button.

### How It’s Calculated:

The angle of the ramp is calculated using the arctangent function. This is derived from basic trigonometry, where the angle (in radians) is the arctangent of the height divided by the length. It is then converted to degrees using a conversion factor of 180/π.

### Limitations:

Please ensure that both length and height values are positive numbers. The calculator does not handle non-numeric or negative inputs, and results will be unreliable if such values are used.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculate Ramp Angle Use Cases:

Calculate the Ramp Angle: You can simply enter the values for the height and length of the ramp into the calculator. It will then instantly provide you with the accurate ramp angle in degrees. This helps in ensuring the safety and accessibility of the ramp for various users.

Adjustable Ramp Length: If you are unsure about the ramp length needed for a specific ramp angle, you can use the calculator to experiment with different length values until you find the optimal solution. This allows you to customize the ramp according to your specific requirements.
