How to use the IMSINH function

The IMSINH function calculates the hyperbolic sine of a complex number in x + yi or x + yj text format.

The letter j is used in electrical engineering to distinguish between the imaginary value and the electric current.

How to use the IMSINH function

The image above demonstrates a formula in cell D3 that calculates the hyperbolic sine of a complex number specified in cell B3.

Formula in cell D3:

=IMSINH(B3)

3.1 Explaining formula

Step 1 - Populate arguments

IMSINH(inumber)

becomes

IMSINH(B3)

Step 2 - Evaluate the IMSINH function

IMSINH(B3)

becomes

IMSINH("1+2i")

and returns

-0.489056259041294+1.40311925062204i
