## What is the difference between angle of friction and angle of repose?

Angle of Friction is the angle between the normal force (N) and the resultant force (R) of normal force and friction. Angle of Repose is the angle of maximum slope, where an object placed just begins to slide.

## How to Calculate Angle of repose?

Angle of repose calculator uses Angle of repose=atan(Limiting Force/Normal reaction) to calculate the Angle of repose, Angle of repose is the angle that the plane of contact between two bodies makes with the horizontal when the upper body is just on the point of sliding. Angle of repose and is denoted by α symbol.

How to calculate Angle of repose using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Angle of repose, enter Limiting Force (F) and Normal reaction (Rn) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Angle of repose calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.000381 = atan(5/4).

### FAQ

What is Angle of repose?
Angle of repose is the angle that the plane of contact between two bodies makes with the horizontal when the upper body is just on the point of sliding and is represented as α=atan(F/Rn) or Angle of repose=atan(Limiting Force/Normal reaction). Limiting Force is the friction generated when two surfaces come in contact with each other and Normal reaction is the force exerted by a surface on an object in contact with it which prevents the object from passing through the surface .
How to calculate Angle of repose?
Angle of repose is the angle that the plane of contact between two bodies makes with the horizontal when the upper body is just on the point of sliding is calculated using Angle of repose=atan(Limiting Force/Normal reaction). To calculate Angle of repose, you need Limiting Force (F) and Normal reaction (Rn). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Limiting Force and Normal reaction and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
