    Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange. Are you asking about the angle between the Earth's axis and its equator? They're defined as 90° apart... – Daniel Griscom Aug 7 at 2:47

    You might be thinking of the ecliptic, the plane of the Earth's orbit around the Sun, but, as @DanielGriscom notes, the equator-pole angle is 90 degrees by definition. – Barry Carter Aug 8 at 15:09

    I'm aware of equator-pole angle, I wanted the angle between axis and equator. Thanks @DanielGriscom, your comment has answered the question. – user1 Aug 8 at 17:57

    Is the question clear now, do you want me to change in any other way? – user1 Aug 9 at 19:07
