Angle to Pitch

Convert an angle in degrees to a slope ratio of inches per foot.

Example
This calculator uses the following formula:
slope ratio of inches in 12 = tan(angle * 0.0174533) * 12

requested stair angle = 35°
tan (35 * 0.0174533) * 12
tan (0.6108655) * 12
0.700 * 12 = 8.4

The slope of these stairs = 8.4 : 12 - they will rise 8.4 inches for every 12 inches of run.
