German term or phrase: p-ges = 0,1 MPa
ok, it is really written p (italics) and ges (tiny subscript)
followed by that arrow-like symbol to the right followed by MPa. As it is all in connection with catalyzed gas phase reaction under increased pressure, I suspect that the p stands for pressure but that still leaves the subscript puzzle for "ges" (perhaps "gesetzt?). Could the MPa stand for molecular particles? - The scientists to my assistance, please. TIA!
