## Gradient

Gradient is a measure of the steepness of a slope between two points.

If the difference in height between the two points is 40 m, and the distance between the two points is 4 km the gradient would be:

4000m 400 100

This means that for every 100m distance (run) there is a rise of 1 metre.

**Gradient = rise over run OR**__rise__**run**If the difference in height between the two points is 40 m, and the distance between the two points is 4 km the gradient would be:

__40m____4____1__4000m 400 100

This means that for every 100m distance (run) there is a rise of 1 metre.
