high-resolution terminology - matching measurements at high-resolution



Numerical equivalence (symbol ≑) indicates that two quantities are numerically equal, even if the full meaning may be different. For instance: 1 ≑ 1Β·1 and 1 ≑ 1/1. In contrast to ≑, the symbol = indicates physicochemical equality.

Abbreviation: ≑
