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