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:

Basic Description

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 :

- directly
- as a value returned from another function or formula, or
- as a reference to a cell containing a value
