## What do you use an inclinometer for?

An inclinometer (or clinometer), is an instrument used for measuring the angles of slope/tilt and elevation/depression of an object with respect to gravity.

#### How accurate is a digital inclinometer?

Accuracy. Certain highly sensitive electronic inclinometer sensors can achieve an output resolution to 0.0001°; depending on the technology and angle range, it may be limited to 0.01°.

Can my iPhone measure a slope?

Open Measure. Tap Level, then hold iPhone against an object, such as a picture frame. Make an object level: Rotate the object and iPhone until you see green. Match the slope: Tap the screen to capture the slope of the first object.

How do you zero an inclinometer?

Put the incli- nometer on the surface that is actually 20° off the horizontal plane. The unit reads 20°. 2. Press the on / off / alternate zero button to toggle to alternate zero mode (the icon REF is now visible and the angle readout is now ZERO).

## What angle is a 1 in 4 slope?

14.04°
Table of Common Slopes in Architecture

14.04° 1 : 4 25%
15° 1 : 3.73 26.8%
26.57° 1 : 2 50%
30° 1 : 1.73 57.7%

### How do you find the angle of tilt?

The optimum tilt angle is calculated by adding 15 degrees to your latitude during winter, and subtracting 15 degrees from your latitude during summer. For instance, if your latitude is 34°, the optimum tilt angle for your solar panels during winter will be 34 + 15 = 49°.

#### How accurate is iPhone inclinometer?

Excellent intra-rater reliability was found with both the inclinometer and iPhone® for lumbar spine flexion and extension ROM ranging from 0.84–0.92 (Table 3). The results of the current study showed that the inter-rater reliability was good to excellent, ranging from 0.77–0.89 (Table 4).

Is there a slope app?

This professional tool called Clinometer is the most precise (all you can get with some calculations) slope measurement tool for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad using all sides of the device plus the camera.

What is the difference between slope and inclination?

Inclination and slope of a line It is measured in anti-clockwise direction from the positive direction of x−axis. If inclination angle is known: Slope of a line is the tangent of the angle of inclination.
