Where can I find this symbol?

Hello community, I am new to this and I am looking for a specific symbol that I found in a book, the book is engineering, fluid mechanics, fundamentals and applications, is the image: I thank you if it is a special source or if it is a symbol created by the author, thank you very much in advance.

Thanks, I did not find the symbol, the book is from Mc Graw Hill, you do not have more documents to search by chance?

@byn, please stop posting links to symbols lists that don't carry the symbol asked for. It's not helpful.

I have spent some time looking for that same symbol myself. Let me guess: Çengel, Boles, and Kanoğlu, Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach, Ninth Edition; McGraw Hill: Singapore, 2020? I tried to emulate the same symbol as part of the thermodynamics package, and I eventually gave up and just told users not to use that symbol (I'm honestly not sure why they use it in the first place).

I did create the following versions, which require TikZ and aren't actual characters (and thus not all that robust with respect to font changes, etc.):
\usepackage{tikz}
\newcommand*{\convexV}{%
  {\tikz{\draw[line width=0.7pt] (0,0) .. controls (0.02,-0.22)
      .. (0.07,-0.23) .. controls (0.13,-0.20) .. (0.18,0);}}
}
\newcommand*{\convexlittleV}{%
  {\tikz{\draw[line width=0.7pt] (0,0) .. controls (0.03,-0.25)
      .. (0.06,-0.27) .. controls (0.12,-0.24) .. (0.2,0);}}
}

Then you can get an approximation to the symbol you wanted with \convexlittleV
