Function name:

SINH

Category:

Mathematical

Summary:

Calculates the hyperbolic sine (sinh) of a hyperbolic angle expressed in radians.

Syntax:

SINH(Number)

Returns:

Returns a real number that is the hyperbolic sine of the specified hyperbolic angle.

Arguments:

Number is a real number, or a reference to a cell containing that number, that is the hyperbolic angle in radians whose hyperbolic sine is to be calculated.

  • If Number is non-numeric, then SINH reports a #VALUE! error.

Additional details:

The formula for the hyperbolic sine of x is:

[math]\displaystyle{ \sinh(x)~=~\frac{e^x-e^{-x}}{2} }[/math]
