# Diagrams for equations. Anyone know? watch

1. I'm doing chemistry coursework and would really like to be able to add examples of equations in terms of diagrams. I was looking on google for such diagrams (unsuccessfully) and was wondering if anyone else knows where I can get some from?
2. Do you mean like this?

Normal:

'Diagram':

3. No I mean maybe the structural formulas. How did you write the equation under the normal section?
4. The first one can be done with latex.

not sure what you're asking here. Are you trying to find a chemical drawing package to draw structural formulae? Or do you just want some examples of reaction equations.

What is latex?

I'm just looking for something where I can write either the structural formula or just the normal c6h12o6 so that I can make an equation, without having to spend hours looking on google

LaTeX is a markup language for rendering all sorts of mathematical and scienfitic symbols. It works on these forums and in many other places and it's incredibly easy to learn.

Here are some instructions on how to use it
10. thank you

thank you
you're welcome. LaTeX is well worth learning if you're planning on carrying on with science or maths.

You can also get plug-ins for Word and so on, meaning you can just pop LaTeX expressions right into your report or essay.
12. Ah... I'll find a way to do it. Just need to read the instructions on how to do it later

hey! There you go! (told you it was easy, didn't I?

There's a big list of LaTeX commands here. You will see there is every type of symbol you could ever possibly need in a lifetime!
Thank you for teaching me all this <3

You're welcome. LaTeX totally rocks. I do all my assignments in it for my maths degree.
