Slope, Ramp, Inclined Plane

Definition of Slope

1. Slope refers to the steepness of a line or surface. Slope of a line is the ratio of change in elevation to the horizontal distance required to achieve that new elevation.
2. Slope may also refer to a surface inclined at an angle from the horizontal. Such a surface is called inclined plane or ramp.
