Help to find pitch

Hello, I'm adding a second floor to my house and will be removeing the ridge beam to raise it higher. the new hight will be 5 feet above the ceiling and the run is 14 ' 1 ". Iwould like to know the easy way to find out the angles I need to cut and how I would cut the roof rafter. Thanks. Rich
