Angle of Depression Solver

About Angle of Depression

Angle of depression solver calculates angle through which the imaginary straight line must be lowered (or depressed) from the horizontal to the object where height and distance are given. If the imaginary straight line is elevated from the ground, it becomes angle of elevation.

How Angle of Depression Calculator Works

Using The Calculator

  • Enter the value for distance and height into the box (numbers only)


  • Hit the equal orange button to generate the worksheet.

Inside the Calculator’s Brain

  • Example: An electricity pylon stands on horizontal ground. At a point 80 m from the base of the pylon, find the angle of depression of the bottom of the pylon if the height of the pylon is 60 meter long.

Angle of depression

  • The distance will be 80, and height =60, only numbers are used by the calculator to compute the angle of depression using the formula below


  • The height is the opposite, and the distance is on the adjacent side.


  • Apply the formula by substituting the value of height and distance for opposite and adjacent sides respectively
