Equations[edit]

For uniformity in the book a template should be used for embeding equations. View the template at Template:PSG/eq use it as follows

{{PSG/eq|<math>ax^2+bx+c=0</math>}}

Which gives

ax^2+bx+c=0\

Units[edit]

Units should be given using the /mathrm{} command and small spaces \, between the units. Vectors should be bold and italicized if they are variables with the /boldsymbol{} command.

{{PSG/eq|<math>\sum\Delta\boldsymbol{p}=0~\mathrm{kg\,m/s}</math>}}
\sum\Delta\boldsymbol{p}=0~\mathrm{kg\,m/s}
