In summary, the conversation discusses the difficulty of typing mathematical symbols and equations for posting on a physics forum. The suggested solution is to use LaTeX coding, which can be learned through a provided link or by copying and pasting examples from other posts. Alternatively, plain text can also be used, but may require translation for easier understanding.

Also, if you find an example of an equation, you can "reply" and that will give you a copy of what they typed. You can then cut and paste this into your own post.

To type an exponent, use the caret symbol (^) followed by the exponent number. For example, 2^3 will display as 2^{3}.

To type a fraction, use the forward slash (/) to divide the numerator and denominator. For example, 1/2 will display as ^{1}/_{2}.

To type a square root, use the sqrt() function and place the number inside the parentheses. For example, sqrt(4) will display as √4.

To type Greek letters, use the backslash (\) followed by the name of the letter. For example, \alpha will display as α.

To type equations with multiple lines, use the align environment. Use the & symbol to indicate where the equations should align. For example:

\begin{align} 2x + 3y &= 7 \\ 4x - 5y &= 2 \end{align}

will display as:

2x + 3y = 7

4x - 5y = 2
