  • Elevation Grade Calculator - Find Percentage or Length of ...

    Grade, also referred to as slope, is the amount of incline of an elevation, for example the angle of the side of a hill. Grade can be expressed as the amount of rise over the amount of run, as a percentage, or as an angle measurement in degrees or radians. Grade measurements are often used in projects ranging from roofing to road construction.
