RS2 Posting Symbols

Post by bperet » Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:55 pm

I have updated the posting editor with additional unicode symbols:

ℎ Planck's constant
ℏ reduced Planck's constant
Å Angstroms
℉ degrees Fahrenheit
℃ degrees Celsius
K Kelvin
ℜ Real part
ℑ Imaginary part
Ω Ohms, resistance
℧ Mhos, conductance

Also added ∝ (proportional) to the Math dropdown and ∴ (therefore) to the Logic dropdown.

I have also added a new, RS2 menu for concepts specific to RS2:

RS2 Dropdown

Linear, linear velocity
⇀ 1D vector
⇌ 1D bivector
∟ 2D plane

Angular, angular velocity
∠ 1D rotation, angle in radians
∢ 2D rotation, solid angle in steradians
⦖ 3D rotation, hyperangle (roll angle)

Vibrations
∿ Linear (1D)
⎋ Birotation (2D→1D)
⌁ Charge (1D electric or 2D magnetic)
⌇ Thermal charge (3D)

Geometric
↻ CW, Clockwise rotation
↺ CCW, Counterclockwise, anticlockwise rotation
∥ Parallel
⊥ Orthogonal, perpendicular

I chose symbols that were available in the common Arial and Times New Roman fonts, which should be available on all browsers. (If the symbols show up as a question mark or box, then you have font issues in the browser.)

Let me know if there are any additional suggestions.

I have added the two variants of the Greek lowercase phi:

ϕ (phi or closed phi)
φ (varphi, or looped phi)

to the Greek menu. See: Symbols and Convention Reference for RS2 usage.
