Rise Run

For smaller angles, the ratio obtained when the change in offset between two centre lines is divided by the distance along either centerline.

In effect, it is the slope of one line in a plane compared to another line in the same plane. Angularity is normally specified in mils/inch, or milliradians which is rise/run.
