Slopes of Pyramid Face and Edge

Slopes of Pyramid Face and Edge

Slopes; Face, Edge


Slope, expressed in degrees, is an angle of inclination, measuring steepness. Below are images of a mountain slope (left) with the angle made clear (right).

Drawing straight lines, we can determine the angle of slope by measuring rise and run. Rise is the difference vertically, while run is the distance horizontally. Drawing a line at a diagonal allows us to determine the slope.

Every pyramid has two slopes; face slope and edge slope.

When considering pyramid slope, we must distinguish between edge and face. Using the two pyramid images above as examples, there are two perspectives from which to examine the slope of a pyramid; face (left) and edge (right).

The Slope of the Face

The Slope of the Face

Face Slope

The first perspective (above, left) is with a pyramid face directly in front of us. Viewed from this perspective, the Great Pyramid slope is 51.83 degrees (51 degrees, 50 minutes, etc.). When we speak about the special slope of the Giza pyramid, we are referring to this 51.83 degrees. This slope is related to Phi.

The Slope of the Edge

The Slope of the Edge

Edge Slope

The second perspective is with a corner facing us. This will allow us to observe the edge slope. Viewed from this perspective, the Great Pyramid has a slope of 42 degrees (41 degrees, 59 minutes, etc.).
