For a subscript we will use the <sub> tag, as you can see:

<p>This is a <sub>subscript text </sub></p>

Subscript - Practical applications

The subscript tag, same as the superscript tag can be used at writing the mathematical expressions. Still, the place where we most find it are the chemical formulas.

<p>H<sub>2</sub>0 - Water

<p>O<sub>2</sub> - Oxygen

<p>CO<sub>2</sub> - Carbon dioxide

<p>H<sub>2</sub>SO<sub>4</sub> - Sulfuric acid


H20 - Water

O2 - Oxygen

CO2 - Carbon dioxide

H2SO4 - Sulfuric acid


As you can see in the example presented above its use is very practical.
