    no its an a thats like a loop or something.
    i need it for chemistry open book

    EDIT: Oh thanks TheTallOne thats it

    Copying and pasting it won't work, but the alpha with loop is the one they've posted, it's just less prounounced when you type it on the comp than when you write it by hand.
