Formula:Foliation Angle = Angle of Intersection + Slope

Introduction to Foliation Angle in Metamorphic Rocks

The foliation angle in metamorphic rocks is calculated by measuring the angle of intersection between the foliation and the horizontal plane, and adding the slope of the rock.

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The angle of intersection should be between 0 and 90 degrees, and the slope should be a positive real number.


This formula calculates the foliation angle in metamorphic rocks by taking into account both the angle of intersection and the slope of the rock, providing valuable information for geological studies.
