eg Na^ and CN^

It means that the number or symbol that follows is placed in the top corner of Symbol before it

E.g cm^3 or CN^-

you just cant write them on here

so what does H^+ mean?

The ^ is a caret. It means that the following typed "whatever" is a superscript. We can't write superscripts (without a lot of trouble). Neither can we write subscripts without a lot of trouble, which is why we write H2O instead of H

For example, H^+ means H

Na^+ means sodium ion and CN^- means cyanide ion. They should be written as Na

ok, thanks
