    I downloaded LaTeX because I heard people talking about it and thought i should try it.

    I m trying to write a Free Energy equation for the electrolysis of water and I cant figure out how to get an arrow into my equation. I know the \arrow thing but i don't know where to put it. If you could help that would be much appreciated.

    My equation right now is.
    $\triangle{G}$ $2H_2O \arrow 2H_2+O_2$

    I think I am putting the \arrow in the wrong place. I am totally new to this so any help is appreciated.

    When i do $\triangle{G}$ $2H_2O > 2H_2+O_2$ it works but I really want the arrow.


    Thanks

    Check out this thread on PhysicsForums.com. There are a ton of great examples of LaTeX, including limits, integrals, summation notation, and more.
