Help, writing things like Alpha Decay in Chemistry?

  1. Nov 30, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Okay so I want to be able to do this in Microsoft Word 2003:


    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    However, the problem is, when I try to do subscripts and superscripts in Microsoft Word, they don't appear as part of the "same block". Basically, for example, have a number like.. 4 in the superscript, and 2 in the subscript, UNDERNEATH the 4. However, in word, it's next to the 4 which I don't want. Does anyone know how to do this, would be greatly appreciated =]! Thanks a lot!

    MS Equation (editor) will do that for you. It is an optional add-on when you install Word. I just tried it in MS Equation and obtained what you are asking.
