# Physics Study Guide/Style Guide

 These are accepted book guidelines. Please post any proposed changes to the disscussion page. To edit this template see Template:Physics Study Guide/Style Guide

#### Equations

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|$ax^2+bx+c=0$}}


Which gives

 ${\displaystyle ax^{2}+bx+c=0\ }$

#### Units

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|$\sum\Delta\boldsymbol{p}=0~\mathrm{kg\,m/s}$}}

 ${\displaystyle \sum \Delta {\boldsymbol {p}}=0~\mathrm {kg\,m/s} }$
