Eq(1)=> Daily average load =No. of units (kWh) generated in a day/24 hours

Eq(2)=> E=mC^2

where E=Energy

m=mass

C= velocity of light

How can I write this above two equations in this template and if length of a sentence is long then what to do?

One proposal since i don't understand the question:

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{array} \begin{document} \begin{align} \mathrm{Daily~average~load~}&=\mathrm{No.~of~units~(kWh)~ generated~in~a~day/24~hours}\\ E&=mC^2 \end{align} where \begin{tabular}[t]{>{$}l<{$}@{~=~}l} E&Energy\\ m&mass\\ C& velocity of light \end{tabular} \end{document}

The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Here is another example showing the use of siunitx. It may look strange here, but in bigger documents it's very useful for consistent scientific units and constants.

For the rest, see Johannes' post.

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{siunitx} \DeclareSIUnit\E{E} \DeclareSIUnit\c{c} \begin{document} \begin{equation} \text{Daily average load} = \text{No. of units (\si{\kWh}) generated in a day / 24 hours} \end{equation} \begin{equation} \si{\E} = \si{\m\c\squared} \end{equation} \end{document}

For the rest, see Johannes' post.

Stefan,

i would argue that Energy, mass and speed of light have units to measure them, but are not units themselve. Einsteins formula looks really queer written as SI units.

Another thing i came around a while ago was that using

`\text`

isn't always a good idea. If that equation is used in a theorem with italic text, the text in the formula will also be written in italics, which would be inconsistent.The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

By the way, you may notice that I wrote constants and units upright. That's what

Johannes is right, that E and m are variables, but c is a constant, to be written upright, and a mix would look even more strange... so I took the freedom to define them kind of symbolic upshape because we don't really calculate with those variables, or do we ...

`siunitx`

does, furthermore it takes care of spacing between numbers and units, and more.Johannes is right, that E and m are variables, but c is a constant, to be written upright, and a mix would look even more strange... so I took the freedom to define them kind of symbolic upshape because we don't really calculate with those variables, or do we ...

where \begin{tabular}[t]{>{$}l<{$}@{~=~}l} x&Measurement interval (1 hour). The value of x can be up to 8760 in a year, if the plant operates throughout. In case the plant has been shut down for some period in year y, in that year, use the number of measurement for x for the operational hour only\\ \end{tabular}

Here the description length of x is very long, this text cross the right side border in pdf and no starting in new line after first line. This sentence always in one line. How can I solve this?

Substitute the final

I recommend to read LaTeX for complete novices.

On the other hand, i think that in a sserious paper, the description of what a variable or constant is, belongs into the text. In text, the meaning can be written in clear sentences. A proper list of symbols at the begin or end of a paper with a short description for a quick look-up is the usal way to go.

Having the description glued to the equation is one of the most hideous things i see in academic papers and technical reports.
