SINH

SINH

Returns the hyperbolic sine of the numeric value.

Syntax

SINH(
numeric_value
)
The following table describes the argument for this command:
Argument
Required/
Optional
Description
numeric_value
Required
Numeric datatype. Numeric data expressed in radians (degrees multiplied by pi divided by 180). Passes the values for which you want to calculate the hyperbolic sine. You can enter any valid transformation expression.

Return Value

Double value.
NULL if a value passed to the function is NULL.

Example

The following expression returns the hyperbolic sine for the values in the Angles port:
SINH( ANGLES )
ANGLES

Tip

You can perform arithmetic on the values passed to SINH before the function calculates the hyperbolic sine. For example:
SINH( MEASURES.ARCS / 180 )
