Hyperbolic sine of 1 (1.175201194) 
=SINH(1) 
Hyperbolic sine of 1 (1.175201194) 

Example 2
You can use the hyperbolic sine function to approximate a cumulative probability distribution. Suppose a laboratory test value varies between 0 and 10 seconds. An empirical analysis of the collected history of experiments shows that the probability of obtaining a result, x, of less than t seconds is approximated by the following equation:
P(x<t) = 2.868 * SINH(0.0342 * t), where 0<t<10
To calculate the probability of obtaining a result of less than 1.03 seconds, substitute 1.03 for t.

=2.868*SINH(0.0342*1.03) 
Probability of obtaining a result of less than 1.03 seconds (0.101049063) 

You can expect this result to occur about 101 times for every 1000 experiments.
