## Python math.cosh() method

math.cosh() method is a library method of math module, it is used to get the hyperbolic cosine of given number in radians, it accepts a number and returns hyperbolic cosine.

Note: math.cosh() method accepts only numbers, if we provide anything else except the number, it returns error TypeError"TypeError: a float is required".

Syntax of math.cosh() method:

```    math.cosh(x)
```

Parameter(s): x – is the number whose hyperbolic cosine to be calculated.

Return value: float – it returns a float value that is the hyperbolic cosine value of the number x.

Example:

```    Input:
x = 1.5

# function call
print(math.cosh(x))

Output:
2.352409615243247
```

### Python code to demonstrate example of math.cosh() method

```# Python code to demonstrate example of
# math.cosh() method

# importing math module
import math

# number
x = -10
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))

x = 0
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))

x = 1.5
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))

x = 5
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))

x = 15.45
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))
```

Output

```math.cosh( -10 ):  11013.232920103324
math.cosh( 0 ):  1.0
math.cosh( 1.5 ):  2.352409615243247
math.cosh( 5 ):  74.20994852478785
math.cosh( 15.45 ):  2563419.889913628
```

TypeError example

```# Python code to demonstrate example of
# math.cosh() method with exception

# importing math module
import math

# number
x = "2.5"
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))
```

Output

```Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/main.py", line 9, in <module>
print("math.cosh(",x,"): ", math.cosh(x))
TypeError: a float is required
```
