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.

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*

The Gradient calculator includes the following formulas

rise = y_{2} - y_{1}

run = x_{2} - x_{1}

Gradient = *rise**/**run*

- x
_{1}: First horizontal co-ordinate, affects run and Gradient - x
_{2}: Second horizontal co-ordinate, affects run and Gradient - y
_{1}: First vertical co-ordinate, affects rise and Gradient - y
_{2}: 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
