Using the Hyperbolic Secant Calculator

To use the tool to find the hyperbolic secant, enter the measurement of a hyperbolic angle and run the tool.

  • Angle - measurement of the angle

Once you're happy with the inputs, click the "Compute Hyperbolic Secant" button.

  • Hyperbolic Secant - the result of the calculation

What is the hyperbolic secant?

Hyperbolic secant is the reciprocal of the of the hyperbolic cosine or:


Hyperbolic secant as a formula

As a hyperbolic function, hyperbolic secant is usually abbreviated as "sech", as in the following equation:


If you already know the hyperbolic secant, use the inverse hyperbolic secant or arcsech to find the angle.

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