Angle between a Pair of Lines
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 07 May, 2021

Given two integers M1 and M2 representing the slope of two lines intersecting at a point, the task is to find the angle between these two lines.

Examples:

Input: M1 = 1.75, M2 = 0.27
Output: 45.1455 degrees

Input: M1 = 0.5, M2 = 1.75
Output: 33.6901 degrees

Approach: If θ is the angle between the two intersecting lines, then the angle θ can be calculated by:



tanθ = |(M2 – M1) / (1 + M1 * M2)|
=> θ = tan-1( |(M2 – M1) / (1 + M1 * M2)| )

Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
#define PI 3.14159265
 
// Function to find the
// angle between two lines
void findAngle(double M1, double M2)
{
    // Store the tan value  of the angle
    double angle = abs((M2 - M1)
                       / (1 + M1 * M2));
 
    // Calculate tan inverse of the angle
    double ret = atan(angle);
 
    // Convert the angle from
    // radian to degree
    double val = (ret * 180) / PI;
 
    // Print the result
    cout << val;
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    double M1 = 1.75, M2 = 0.27;
 
    findAngle(M1, M2);
 
    return 0;
}
