[Solved] writing dissociation reactions

Postby debaser » Sun Nov 09, 2014 5:59 am

I tried to find something I could copy and paste as an example, but couldn't find a good one.

I try typing( Ag_(aq) ^+) +( CH_3(aq) ^-) + (CO_2(aq) ^-) toward AgCH_3 CO_2(s)

I've tried many variations of this,some with brackets, ome with {}, bt nothing is working right. Biggest trouble is with the ^+ . It always seems to end up as a ?.

Any help would be much appreciated. And if there's any way to make the ^+ to be placed right above the _3(aq). That would be ideal

Does this work?
Ag_(aq)^"+" +CH_{3(aq)}^"-" + CO_{2(aq)}^"-" toward AgCH_3 CO_{2(s)}
