How to use the SINH Function in Excel

In this article, we will learn about how to use the SINH function in Excel.

SINH function is built in excel function. Hyperbolic function of SINH defined using the exponential function.

Sinh (x) = (ex- e-x) / 2
Where ex = exponential function, e = 2.71828

The SINH function is hyperbolic sine of a input number in radians. The function returns a number.

=SINH (number)

number : input number you want the hyperbolic sine of.

Let’s understand this function using it in an example.
Here we have values and we need to find its hyperbolic sine value.

Use the formula:


A2 : number given as cell reference.
The value will calculated using the mathematical formulation stated :
Sinh (x) = (e1- e-1) / 2

Now copy the formula to other cells using the Ctrl + D shortcut key.
Excel calculates the Hyperbolic sine of a number using the SINH function.


  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.
