On this page is a hyperbolic cosine calculator, which works for an input of a hyperbolic angle. Enter the hyperbolic angle and choose the units and run the calculator to see the hyperbolic cosine.

Using the Hyperbolic Cosine Calculator

To use the tool to find the hyperbolic cosine, enter the measurement of a hyperbolic angle and compute.

• Angle - measurement of the angle

Once you're happy with the input, click the "Compute Hyperbolic Cosine" button.

• Hyperbolic Cosine - the result of the calculation

What is the hyperbolic cosine?

Hyperbolic cosine is the even part of the exponential function (where hyperbolic sine is the odd):

\cosh(x)=\frac{e^{x}+e^{-x}}{2}

Hyperbolic cosine as a formula

As a hyperbolic function, hyperbolic cosine is usually abbreviated as "cosh", as in the following equation:

\cosh(\theta)

If you already know the hyperbolic cosine, use the inverse hyperbolic cosine or arccosh to find the angle.

After, see the hyperbolic functions and inverse hyperbolic functions in two convenient tools.
