Hey Al, Do I just choose the degree and just do the work. Or does the job dimensions draw a right triangle for you. And you solve it plugging in your measurements? Which part of the job represents which side of the triangle. For example, Is the line of Kicks the hypotneuse? Is the spacing in the ceiling the opposite side? This is the part I am trying to figure out. Or do I just pick a degree tight enough to make the kicks in the panel and apply it?

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I saw that other site.It was helpful.But,they tell you to look at the triangle for references. But,I see no math except for spacing times cosecant. But, how did they determine 30 degrees? The parallel kick job they do on the 30 degree example is almost a carbon copy of the job I was assigned.My first kick is 19.5,24.25,29,33.75 for the last. I only have about 25" inches of space to work with.This is why I am using 4.75" center to center into the panel. I have other pipes to land in the panel.My spacing in the ceiling is 5.5". Some other people ran the pipes over head at 5.5" If I use 30 degrees an the ctc. is 11" apart I will not have enough room .Can I choose a higher degree to make the bends in the confines of 25" with 4.75" spacing?The box isn't knocked out yet.

Hello RN. To do the kicks as I've done you must first figure out the ammount that each pipe needs to be kicked. Then you take the C to C spacing of the conduits which in your case is 5.5. You must multiply that by the Multiplier of what ever degree you are kicking the pipes. Example 30* kick multiplier of 2. 2x5.5 = 11" That is the C to C spacing of the panel your landing onto. However is your panel already knocked out?
