I'm writing a scientific report (due this evening), and I'm having some problems regarding capital letters. As usual, figures, tables, sections, etc., are given capital letters. Example: Results given in Fig. 2. See Tabs. 4-5.
In one of the tables I have defined 14 integrals, where each integral is paired up with a number. These integrals are referred to by: Integrals 3-4 in Tab. 2.
My question is this. Should I capitalize the I in integral, when referring to them in the middle of a sentence?
Should I say: When testing with integral 4. Or: When testing with Integral 4.
If the latter case, should I use an abbreviation for Integral, like I do for Figure (Fig.), Table (Tab.) and Section (Sec.)?
