The Excel ASINH Function
Inverse Hyperbolic Sine
The asinh function returns the inverse hyperbolic sine. Therefore:
ASINH( SINH( z ) ) = z
The equation used to calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine is:
Further information on the inverse hyperbolic functions can be found on
The Excel ASINH function calculates the inverse hyperbolic sine of a supplied number.
The format of the function is :
ASINH( number )
Where the number argument is the real number that you want to calculate the inverse sinh of.
This can be input to the function either :
- as a value returned from another function or formula, or
- as a reference to a cell containing a value
