This tool calculates the rolling offset for your piping projects accurately and efficiently.

## How to Use the Rolling Offset Calculator

Enter the angles of the two offsets in degrees and the distance between them in inches. Press the “Calculate” button to obtain the length of the piping needed.

## Explanation

The rolling offset calculator computes the length of the offset using the given angles and distance. This calculation is essential for designing piping systems where precise lengths are necessary to ensure proper fit and function.

## Calculation Method

The result is derived using trigonometry. The formula used is:

Length = sqrt((distance * tan(offset1))^2 + (distance * tan(offset2))^2)

This formula leverages the tangent of the angles to determine the horizontal and vertical components, and then applies the Pythagorean theorem to find the hypotenuse, which represents the required length of the piping.

## Limitations

The calculator assumes the angles are measured in degrees and the distance in inches. It also assumes that angles are less than 90 degrees. Results may be inaccurate if these conditions are not met or if the inputs are not within practical limits for real-world piping systems.
