The Excel COSH function returns the hyperbolic cosine of a number. In geometric terms, the function returns the x-component of the point on the unit hyperbola defined by a hyperbolic angle. For example, the hyperbolic sine of 0 is 1, since the point corresponding to the hyperbolic angle of 0 is P=(1,0), where P=(x,y).
The COSH function syntax has the following arguments:
- Number (Required): Any real number for which you want to find the hyperbolic cosine.
Example: Let’s look at some Excel COSH function examples and explore how to use the COSH function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:
Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following COSH examples would return:
