Welcome to the forum, we are here to help you.
So far, you didn't leave any clues on what might be wrong.

So yeah, sharing some information would be useful ;)

What should be the natural spacement between equations?

Your book is about physics. Equations in physics need some space. Do you want equations to have the same distance from one another in all of the 2000+ pages?

Terminal commands on MacOS to access Latex

I bet you can run it from command line. TeX will output a dvi file, or a pdf file. It will never generate a png file. Everytime you see TeX generate a png file, a command like imagemagick was run in the background before.

Is this question about an English index, or a table of contents (slso called index in some romance languages)

What should be the natural spacement between equations?

I would suggest to use a single \\ at the end of an equation line. The spacing will be different, as very equation needs a bit of variable space.

Your constriction of exact space, isn't what I would enforce.

Terminal commands on MacOS to access Latex

The command simply is pdflatex.
The standalone class might also be useful.

Well, the simple way would be to not use manual spacing and let TeX do its job. Knuth designed it to prepare beautiful books.
