Title: I Need Help With A Subscript...
Post by: Captain Jesus on 14/02/2007 21:39:02
I Am Simply A Sophomore In College And Have Never Learned Much Advanced Chemistry (i.e. If It Even Is Chemistry), And So Have Never Learned Anything Of The Subscript "". Here It Is Used On leda.lycaeum.org, "Yield of succinaldoxime powder is a little over 40 g, mp is 171-172." And "Seal vessel, introduce 50 psi of hydrogen atmosphere (after flushing vessel with hydrogen) and heat to 40-50." My Brother Saw It First And Asked Me And So Now I Am Asking Y'all, Asking "The Naked Scientists". I Found No Mention Of It Anywhere On The Internet. Does Anyone Know What The Subscript "" Stands For? Seems Like A Symbol For A Unit Of Temperature Perhaps, But I've Been Wrong Before.

Do you have a link to the page itself as it may make more sense in context.

Don't Get The Wrong Idea With The Cocaine, My Brother Brought It Up, I'm Just Helping Figure It Out. Also...It Kinda Looks Like An Upside-Down Exclamation Mark When I Get Close To The Screen.

I think they have copied the text from somewhere and the little superscript circle that means "degrees" has been corrupted.

if you are fering to this part of the text:

"the reaction taking place at about 160"

Then i concur with the bored chemist, it does indeed indicated degrees.
