Create a vector and calculate the hyperbolic cosine of each value.
X = [0 pi 2*pi 3*pi]; Y = cosh(X)
Y = 1×4 103 × 0.0010 0.0116 0.2677 6.1958
Plot the hyperbolic cosine function over the domain
x = -5:0.01:5; y = cosh(x); plot(x,y) grid on
The hyperbolic cosine satisfies the identity . In other words, is the average of and . Verify this by plotting the functions.
Create a vector of values between -3 and 3 with a step of 0.25. Calculate and plot the values of
exp(-x). As expected, the curve for
cosh(x) lies between the two exponential curves.
x = -3:0.25:3; y1 = cosh(x); y2 = exp(x); y3 = exp(-x); plot(x,y1,x,y2,x,y3) grid on legend('cosh(x)','exp(x)','exp(-x)','Location','bestoutside')
X— Input angles in radians
Input angles in radians, specified as a scalar, vector, matrix, or multidimensional array.
