# IMSINH

The IMSINH function calculates the inverse hyperbolic sine of a given complex number. Inverse hyperbolic sine of a complex number is the value whose hyperbolic sine is the given complex number. This function is useful in engineering applications that involve complex numbers.

## Usage

Use the `IMSINH` formula with the syntax shown below, it has 1 required parameter:

Parameters:
1. number (required):
The complex number for which we want to calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine.

## Examples

Here are a few example use cases that explain how to use the `IMSINH` formula in Google Sheets.

### Calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine of a complex number

This function can be used to calculate the inverse hyperbolic sine of a given complex number. This is useful in engineering applications that involve complex numbers.

### Solve equations involving hyperbolic functions

This function can be used to solve equations that involve hyperbolic functions using complex numbers.

## Common Mistakes

`IMSINH` not working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the `IMSINH` Google Sheets Formula:

### Providing non-complex number

The `IMSINH` function requires a complex number as input. Providing a non-complex number will result in an error.

### Incorrectly formatted complex number

The complex number provided as input to the `IMSINH` function must be in the form `x + yi`. Any other format will result in an error.

The following functions are similar to `IMSINH` or are often used with it in a formula:

• `IMCOSH`

The `IMCOSH` function returns the hyperbolic cosecant of a complex number in rectangular notation.

• `IMTAN`

Calculates the inverse of the tangent of a number in radians. The resulting angle is returned in radians. This function is most commonly used in engineering calculations that involve angular measurements.
