Description riaanb 2005-03-26 10:21:33 UTC
Texvc is unable to display the Å symbol in mathematical formula's. In TeX \AA is
used to display this symbol. 

<center><math>\begin{matrix}F &=& k\frac{Q_1Q_2}{r^2}\\&=& (8.99\times10^{9}
{\rm N\cdot m^2/C^2}) \frac{(+3\times10^{-9}{\rm C})(-5\times 10^{-9}{\rm
C})}{(2 {\rm m})^2}\\ &=&-\frac{(8.99)(3)(5)}{4}(10^{-9})\frac{(N\cdot
m^2/C^2\!\!\!/)(C^2)}{m^2}\\&=& -3.37\times10^{-8} \rm N\end{matrix}</math></center>

Thanks for your attention

\AA is not UTF8 but LaTeX. Not a duplicate.
Comment 3 JeLuF 2005-03-26 19:53:58 UTC
I can make \AA work, but you probably won't like it:
Comment 4 riaanb 2005-03-28 06:32:06 UTC
How did you get mediawiki to display \AA? 
Comment 5 JeLuF 2005-03-30 16:23:00 UTC
I changed the sourcecode. But I think the result is not too beautiful.
Do you think this is useful this way? It will probably look fine within an \mbox
or similar.

If you say that you still want to have it, I'll commit the change and will update
