# Hyperbolic Tangent Calculator or tanh(x)

Written by:
PK

On this page is a hyperbolic tangent 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 tangent.

## Using the Hyperbolic Tangent Calculator

To use the tool to find the hyperbolic tangent, 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 Tangent" button.

• Hyperbolic Tangent - the result of the calculation

## What is the hyperbolic tangent?

Hyperbolic tangent is the hyperbolic sine over the hyperbolic cosine, or:

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

### Hyperbolic tangent as a formula

As a hyperbolic function, hyperbolic tangent is usually abbreviated as "tanh", as in the following equation:

\tanh(\theta)

If you already know the hyperbolic tangent, use the inverse hyperbolic tangent or arctanh to find the angle.

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