ν | nu

Greek letter ν (nu) was derived from the ancient Phoenician letter 𐤍 (nūn) which, in turn, is believed to be derived from an Egyptian hieroglyph of a snake, 𓆓.

The lower-case letter ν has found many uses in maths and sciences, such as:

For example, in Planck–Einstein relation, E is the energy of a photon, ν is its frequency and h is the Planck constant:

E = hν
