Excel ATANH Function calculates the hyperbolic arctangent of a number. This function is primarily used in trigonometry and calculus, and it returns the inverse hyperbolic tangent of a given number.
|number||The real number for which you want to calculate the inverse hyperbolic tangent.|
How to use
You can use the ATANH function in Excel to find the hyperbolic arctangent of a given number. Here’s how you can use it:
Where number is the real number for which you want to calculate the hyperbolic arctangent.
Let’s explore a few examples to see how the ATANH function works:
Example 1: Calculate the hyperbolic arctangent of 0.5.
The result will be approximately 0.5493.
Example 2: Calculate the hyperbolic arctangent of -0.8.
The result will be approximately -1.0986.
Since the argument is optional, you can leave it empty, but it’s typically used to specify the number for which you want to calculate the hyperbolic arctangent.
The ATANH function is a mathematical function used in Excel for advanced calculations. It is the inverse of the hyperbolic tangent function. The result is a real number that represents the angle whose hyperbolic tangent is the specified number. The range of the result is between -∞ and +∞.
If you are not familiar with hyperbolic trigonometric functions, you may want to explore trigonometry and calculus concepts to understand how to use the ATANH function effectively.
