About the Gradient Calculator

The Gradient calculator allows you to calculate any component of a Gradient, vertical/horizontal coordinates, rise, run and/or Gradient by entering the known quantities of the Gradient. You can calculate the missing coordinates in a Gradient, the rise of a Gradient, the run of a Gradient and any mathematical quantity associated with Gradient calculations.

Properties of a Gradient

A line that slopes up from left to right has a positive Gradient

A line that slopes down from left to right has a negative Gradient

The Gradient of a vertical line is undefined

The Gradient of a horizontal line is 0

The notation for a Gradient is m

Gradient Equations

The Gradient calculator includes the following formulas

Equation for calculating the rise of a Gradient

rise = y2 - y1

Equation for calculating the slope of a Gradient

run = x2 - x1

Equation for calculating a Gradient based on the slope and rise

Gradient = rise/run

Gradient Equation Properties and values

  • x1: First horizontal co-ordinate, affects run and Gradient
  • x2: Second horizontal co-ordinate, affects run and Gradient
  • y1: First vertical co-ordinate, affects rise and Gradient
  • y2: Second vertical co-ordinate, affects rise and Gradient
  • Rise: Vertical height, affects y2 and Gradient
  • Run: Horizontal height, affects x2 and Gradient
  • Gradient: Gradient size, affects rise and y2
