How to use the Excel SINH function

The Microsoft Excel SINH function returns the hyperbolic sine of a number. The SINH function is a built-in function in Excel that is categorized as a Math/Trig Function. It can be used as a worksheet function (WS) in Excel. As a worksheet function, the SINH function can be entered as part of a formula in a cell of a worksheet.

Syntax: =SINH( number )

The SINH function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Number: A numeric value used to calculate the hyperbolic sine.

Example: Let’s look at some Excel SINH function examples and explore how to use the SINH function as a worksheet function in Microsoft Excel:

Based on the Excel spreadsheet above, the following SINH examples would return:

Syntax: =SINH(A3)
Result: 1.175201194

Syntax: =SINH(A4)
Result: 0.521095305

Syntax: =SINH(A5)
Result: -1.175201194

Syntax: =SINH(A6)
Result: -3.626860408

Syntax: =SINH(A7)
Result: -10.01787493

Syntax: =SINH(A8)
Result: -122.3439227

Syntax: =SINH(A9)
Result: -4.457105171

Syntax: =SINH(A10)
Result: 2.129279455

Syntax: =SINH(A11)
Result: -0.521095305

Syntax: =SINH(A12)
Result: 6.050204481

Syntax: =SINH(A13)
Result: -2.129279455

Syntax: =SINH(A14)
Result: 122.3439227

Note:

  1. The function returns the #VALUE! Error, if the argument to the function is non numeric.
  2. The inout number is the angle in radians.
  3. If you want the result in degrees, multiply the result by 180/PI ().
  4. If the argument provided is in degrees, first multiply the number in degrees by PI ()/180 to convert it into radians.
  5. The equation used to calculate the hyperbolic sine is: Excel SINH function - How to use the Excel SINH function
