Re: Greek Letter

ω - lowercase omega

Re: Greek Letter

Yay it fits too, im doing this crossword for chemistry and I dont know half the stuff.
Ive got another one too, what is a synonym for paris(no idea what it had to do with chemistry), 12 letters, and there is a "d" as the seventh letter from the top, unless a carnelian relative isnt sard. I was thinking cityoflights. It fits but no d.  Mabye it isnt sard...

Re: Greek Letter

ω is also the Wronskian in differential equations.

Re: Greek Letter

Wikipedia says Parisians are colloquially called "banlieusards"

Also, if it is chemistry, maybe they are referring to Plaster of Paris ...

Re: Greek Letter

All I can get for the synonym of paris is calcium sulfate. (Plaster of Paris). I tried it a few other ways like that, but I dont think the answer has to do with chemistry at all.. Im wondering about any other names paris might have?
