"Trucks TURN AROUND NOW" would work better.

14% grade: arctan(0.14) = 8 deg.
27% grade: arctan(0.27) = 15 deg.
33% grade: arctan(0.33) = 18 deg.

So would 100% be 45 deg. or 90 deg.?

I imagine it would be 45deg where rise=run. Or run=fall. :o

Fall is right in that case. At that angle, I don't think anyone would be rising.

100% grade (1m down for 1m forward): arctan(1.00) = 45 deg.

The "grade" of a vertical cliff is infinite.

1m down for 1m of road? 90 degrees, of course.

Edit:
Oops, my bad. Definition uses horizontal movement, not length of road.

Actually, you did say "length of road" (hypotenuse?) in your first post, but everything else involving pitch or grade is measured rise over run, so I suppose this would be too.

It's been 23 years since my last geometry class...
