What is the equation for gradient?
What is the unite for gradient in a topographic map?
"Gradient" of a point quantity is a measurement of how fast it changes in a specific direction. For topography, the gradient of the land is its slope in some direction. It would work out to be dimensionless, because it has to be change in elevation/distance which is length/length no matter what units you use for the elevation or distance.

What is a hydraulic power pack?
Hydraulic Power Units are the main driving components of hydraulic systems. Consistingly mainly of a motor, a reservoir and a hydraulic pump, these units can generate a tremendous amount of power to drive most any kind of hydraulic ram. Hydraulic Power Units are based on Pascal's law of physics, drawing their power from ratios of area and pressure. Hydraulic Power Units are used in a wide range of applications, including: Machine Tools Automation Meat Processing Machinery Mobile Equipment Aerospace Test Equipment Rolling Mill Machinery Material Handling Agricultural Equipment Paper Mill Machinery Government/Military Oil Field Oil Spill Clean Up Equipment Industrial Process Marine Equipment Construction Equipment Theatrical & Production Equipment Hyraulic Power Units can generally be used in any application that requires heavy and systematic lifting or other requirements for the repeated use of powerful and directional force. Consider all of the ways that hydraulic power units are used in things you see every day. Drive past any construction site and you're likely to see some kind of heavy construction machine, be it a bull dozer, an excavator or even a skidsteer. All of these machines rely on hydraulic power units to do their work. Fisherman rely on hydraulic power units to lift their nets and pots. Your auto mechanic uses a hydraulic power unit to lift your car high enough to walk around beneath it and make repairs. The Jaws of Life, a tool that has saved many lives in auto accidents, relies on a hydraulic power unit for its incredible cutting power. Farmers use hydraulic-driven machinery to tend and harvest their crops. The garbage truck that picks up your trash uses a hydraulic power unit to compact the garbage it collects. Your favorite amusement park ride probably utilizes hydraulics to lift you high and fast into the air and give you a soft, safe landing. Remember when you stepped on the brakes to avoid that last small animal that ran out into the road? Modern auto braking systems rely on the power of hydraulics. It's easy to overlook the widespread and impressive utility of hydraulic power units, but listing all of their applications it becomes clear that we rely on them for so much of what makes our society run smoothly and efficiently.

How do you work out the gradient of a perpendicular line?
basically the reciprocal of the original lines gradient is going to be the gradient for the perpendicular line (remember the signs should switch). For example if i had a line with the gradient of 3, then the gradient of the perpendicular line will be -1over3. But if the line had the gradient of -3, then the line perpendicular to that line will have the gradient 1over3.

How do you find the gradient of a straight line?
You look at the change in the vertical distance and divide that by the change in the horizontal distance. This is known as the rise over the run. So if the line goes 4 units and over 2 units, the slope or gradient is 4/2=2. Horizontal lines have slope 0 since the rise is 0 It is my2-y1/x2-x1 the points are (9,7) (6,5) x1 y1 x2 y2 m5-7/6-9 m= -3/-3 m-0 That is the gradient
