Equation entry questions are similar to fill in the bank questions in which you are asked to write a chemical formula or equation for your answer. To answer this type of question, click on the box and type in your answer exactly as you would write it on paper. Note that when you click on the box, a tool menu drops down that will allow you to format your answer as if it were handwritten.

Below is a key describing what each tool will allow you to do:

enter mass numbers and atomic numbers to represent isotopes
enter a numerator for a stacked fraction
enter a denominator for a stacked fraction
enter a multiplication dot
enter lowercase Greek alphabetical symbols
enter uppercase Greek alphabetical symbols
enter the phase of matter
enter reaction arrows
