If I were to move an object 4 degrees to the left, how many inches would that be??

Assuming you want to know the distance 90º to the left of the original line, you need to know the radius (or distance from the central angle point to the point of departure).

IF the radius was 24", then: Tan(4º) * radius = 0.0699268 * 24" = 1.678"
