What I want to do or know

Looking at calculations for runoff, where does slope come into play? Is it something I should be accounting for in my runoff equation?

Background story

I was writing up an activity for determining "peak discharge from drainage basin runoff" but noticed it does not include anything about slope.

Hi, Stevie -- is it possible that anything from Model My Watershed could help answer the question? I think they may run these equations in a map format. And/or perhaps the developers of it might be able to answer your question:
