20 degrees is a measure of angular displacement. This cannot be converted to lateral (horizontal) displacement.

other horizontal lines? which would be 180 degrees i guess.

Construct a perpendicular line that intersects a horizontal line at 90 degrees and then bisect the vertical line with the horizontal line will give an obtuse angle of 135 degrees because 90 degrees+45 degrees = 135 degrees

A wall is an example of a surface standing at 90 degrees from the horizontal.

A right angle which is 90 degrees

Horizontal beam width = 4.0 degrees Vertical beam width = 1.6 degrees

Fifteen degrees from the horizontal.

The magnitude of the vector at 45 degrees to the horizontal will be equal to the magnitude of its horizontal and vertical components. This is because the components are obtained by using trigonometric functions of the angle, and in this case, at 45 degrees, those functions yield the same value for both the horizontal and vertical components as the magnitude of the vector.

The volume of a balloon will increase as the temperature increases between 0 degrees Celsius and 60 degrees Celsius. This is because the air inside the balloon will expand as it heats up, causing the balloon to inflate.

Construct a perpendicular line that intersects a horizontal line at 90 degrees and then bisect the vertical line with the horizontal line will give an obtuse angle of 135 degrees because 90 degrees+45 degrees = 135 degrees

It is a line that is not at an angle of 90 degrees to the horizontal!
