  16. At a given point on an interpolated surface, the slope at that point is the value of the partial derivative taken in the direction of the aspect at the point. The slope is measured as an angle that is positive below the horizontal, i.e. ...
  17. The number that expresses the steepness of a line. The slope is the ratio of the vertical change to the horizontal change between any two points on the line. Often referred to as the rise over the run.
  18. Steepness or grade of a line descending or ascending from two different points.
