Disscussing old, rare, very specific or otherwise uncommon units and measurements

Forum rules

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Exotic physics symbol

If any one out there can help me with this symbol i wold greatly appreciate it. The symbol does not appear in the character map applications so i will have to discribe it. Imagine the number 9 with the bottom end curving upwards then to the left to for a tail of sorts. Something like this:


I know it looks wierd but imagine that the tilde (~) and the bottom end are connected by a continueous line. The hyphin (-) is also connected to the part of the circle that intersects the o with the "tail" of the 9.

Please some one help!

Thanks, Tony
