For anything that you want to be a subscript put a ‘q’ in front of itContinue reading “add powers to a maths equation no.2”

So I wrote a macro which adds the standard enthalpy sign below: The r is lowered by 1 point and the standard sign is theContinue reading “write a standard enthalpy change sign”
