Hyperbolic Cosine (Expression Function)

Purpose

The Hyperbolic Cosine function (COSH) is used to calculate the hyperbolic cosine of an angle given in radians, degrees, or gradians. The inverse hyperbolic cosine function is also available.

Parameters

The Hyperbolic Cosine function has two parameters, the first of which is required:

Allowed Inputs: field value or number

The first required parameter is the angle that the hyperbolic cosine will be obtained from either use the use the Query Builder to choose a field that contains the value or use type a value to enter a number.

Angle Unit

Allowed Inputs: omitted, 'd', 'g'

The second parameter of the Hyperbolic Cosine function is the unit the angle is provided in. If the angle unit is omitted or not recognized then radians will be be used. For an angle provided in degrees use 'd'. For an angle provided in gradians use 'g'. If the angle unit needs to be dynamically stored in a field then the advanced expression builder will need to be used.

Output

The output of the Hyperbolic Cosine function is a number representing the horizontal run of an angle where it intersects with the unit hyperbola.

Example

For example COSH(0.5235987755983), COSH(30,'d'), and COSH(33.3333333333,'g') would result in “1.14023832108”.
