No code is giving any output. Please look into this matter.

Not all sites in the network have MathJax enabled. Here is a complete list, and Medical Sciences is not on the list. The answer also states

Why doesn't [site X] support MathJax?

MathJax increases page load times drastically, so it's only supported on sites that have demonstrated a serious need for it.

This is usually done on the site's own Meta (you're there right now) by providing quite a few posts which would benefit from this. There are alternatives which might work in the meantime.

    I've never seen a request for it before, and in fact I've never seen anyone post a non-trivial formula, so I doubt SE would agree that it would really benefit us.

    I'd agree with Carey; it's likely that any somewhat medical-related question that uses that much math would be a better fit for Biology.SE, CrossValidated, or perhaps Bioinformatics or Chemistry.

  • A question was there about physics involved in ECG and I was trying to answer using Vectors(dipole) and Electric Potential. But the latex codes weren't working. So I thought of asking this question. Jul 25, 2020 at 4:06
