Elements and Symbols Study Guide

 Elements and Symbols Study Guide

      Symbols are to be capitalized and printed in block lettering.

All second letters of symbols are to be printed in lower case. This does not mean short capital letters.
 
The name of the element does not have to be capitalized.
   
Be sure that you write your letters carefully. Close the tops of lower case “a” so that they are not confused with lower case “u.” Make sure upper case “V” have a point on the bottom and upper case “U” do not have a point on the bottom. Putting a tail on the “U” makes it a lot easier to tell the difference.
   
Block lettering is as it appears in this document. NO cursive is acceptable. You MUST write these symbols correctly to be understood in all areas of use.
