Help with symbols, propto sideways?

  1. Feb 25, 2010 #1
    My physics professor used a symbol in his notes that I was unfamiliar with, and so far the closest thing I have found to it is the propto. The only difference is that my prof used it vertically, with the open side up. I'm wondering if this is a different symbol entirely, or if he just tipped it for fun. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    The image doesn't appear to be loading, so here's just the link

    That's a picture of his symbol and he used it. Thanks in advance!

    The image you posted as only one pixel, so no information in it!

    But the link works right? It does on my screen at least.

    Sure it works, but a one-pixel image isn't very helpful.

    How about this one? http://imagebin.org/86540 [Broken]

    If not I'm going to go destroy imagebin.

    The problem is about compressing gas in a cylinder and finding the pressure. I feel like it would be solvable if I just ignore those symbols, but they're probably there for a reason.
