calculating line angleis there a way to calculate the angle of a line in a grid based system? #2 20060426 06:31:44
Re: calculating line angleI think trig is the tool you'll be needing here... This is, however, not a branch of mathematics I'm very familiar with. #3 20060426 08:08:26
Re: calculating line angleok appraently u take the arc tangent of the slope to calculat the angle does any 1 know how to calculate the arc tangent? #4 20060426 14:11:39
Re: calculating line angledavid_d, But the slope of the line is tan of the angle made with the xaxis. Therefore, The angle is the arctan of the slope m. The arctan can be known by referring to tables or by using a calculator (scientific mode). Character is who you are when no one is looking.
