The angle of repose or, more precisely, the critical angle of repose,[1] of a granular material is the steepest angle of descent or dip of the slope relative to the horizontal plane when material on the slope face is on the verge of sliding. This angle is in the range 0°–90°.

It is defined as the minimum angle of inciination of plane with the horizontal such that body placed on the plane just begins to slide down.
