It only accepts a single parameter $number, which is the number whose inverse hyperbolic cosine value to be found. The value of this $number parameter must be in radians unit. It returns a floating point number as output which is the inverse hyperbolic cosine value of the input number passed to it.

Syntax:

  acosh($number);

Parameter Values

Parameter Description
