jamesadrian 0 Posted August 9, 2020 Report Share Posted August 9, 2020 I'm trying to write an article on my web site about special relativity. Does HTML5 provide a way to render one over the square root of an expression on a web page? The expression has superscripts and subscripts, which I know how to do. Thank you for your help.

JMRKER 10 Posted August 9, 2020 Report Share Posted August 9, 2020 See if you can use this: <script> const recpSqrt = (value) => { return 1/(Math.sqrt(value)); } var v = 2; alert('Value: '+v+'\nSqrt: '+Math.sqrt(v)+'\nRecpSqrt: '+recpSqrt(v)); v = 3; alert('Value: '+v+'\nSqrt: '+Math.sqrt(v)+'\nRecpSqrt: '+recpSqrt(v)); v = 4; alert('Value: '+v+'\nSqrt: '+Math.sqrt(v)+'\nRecpSqrt: '+recpSqrt(v)); v = 5; alert('Value: '+v+'\nSqrt: '+Math.sqrt(v)+'\nRecpSqrt: '+recpSqrt(v)); </script> Quote Link to post Share on other sites

Ingolme 1,033 Posted August 10, 2020 Report Share Posted August 10, 2020 Wikipedia and other sources use images to represent mathematical expressions on a page. HTML is not well equipped to represent them. There is an XML-based language called MathML, but it is not well supported by browsers. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
