Definitions for

**"Slope"**An oblique direction; a line or direction including from a horizontal line or direction; also, sometimes, an inclination, as of one line or surface to another.

Any ground whose surface forms an angle with the plane of the horizon.

To form with a slope; to give an oblique or slanting direction to; to direct obliquely; to incline; to slant; as, to slope the ground in a garden; to slope a piece of cloth in cutting a garment.

(1) Difference in attenuation of the various frequencies in a band of frequencies; measured in decibels. (2) Measurement of the frequency response of a channel. See attenuation.

The rate at which the loudness of a particular driver decreases beyond the crossover point.

Difference in amplifier gain, or change in cable attenuation, between lowest and highest frequency present.

Adjusts your handicap to the difficulty of the course you play. The more difficult the slope rating on the course, the more strokes the player will need. See the USGA web site for further information.

A rather complicated formula but basically it determines how difficult the course is to play. The higher the "Slope Rating" the harder the course.

A handicap index rating the playing difficulty of a course for above scratch golfers.

Gradient of elevation. One of the characteristics of terrain elevation. See gradient.

(gradient) In rectangular Cartesian coordinates, the rate at which the y-coordinate of a curve or a straight line changes with respect to the x-coordinate.

Percentage or degree change in elevation over a defined distance.

Fall per unit length along the channel centerline.

A slope is a hill or cliff that can be used for slope gliders. In order for there to be lift for the gliders to stay in the air, there has to be wind hitting the face of the hill or cliff. The wind hits the face and is forced upwards. When the glider is thrown off the edge of the top of the hill or cliff, the wind that is going upwards keeps them aloft. Generally, the air currents behind the hill are quite turbulent and may even have downdrafts (air currents going down which usually equate to turning your glider into a pretty rock with wings that falls out of the sky).

Difference in height between highest and lowest points of the tank bottom.

Part of the numerical representation used to express a fixed-point number. Along with the bias, the slope forms the scaling of a fixed-point number. Fixed-point numbers can be represented as where the slope can be expressed as See also bias, fixed-point representation, fractional slope, integer, scaling, [Slope Bias
