## SolomonZelman one year ago Latex for a chart anyone?

1. SolomonZelman

How do I put up |dw:1387896712769:dw| using latex?

hline and | in an array. There are other methods, but those will work here. $\begin{array}{|c|c|c|}\hline a & b & c\\\hline 1 & 2 & 3\\ i & ii & iii \\ \text{un} & \text{du} & \text{tros}\\ \end{array}$ In the {|c|c|c|} part, the | are what makes the column bars and the c stands for center. You can also use r for right or l for left justified columns.

${|~c~|~c~|~c~|}$ ok, but how did you do the chart, can you pliz msg the latex for it, I;ll figure out what to change and how, it would be very helpful

Right click it, Show math as, TeX commands. Then you can see the $$\LaTeX$$ code ued to mak it.

{array} works in this space  $\large\text{Fundamental Quantities}\\ \begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|} \hline\textbf{Variable} &\textbf{Symbol}&\textbf {SI unit} &\textbf{Dimension} \\ \hline\text{length} &\ell &[\text m] &\sf L \\ \text{time} &t &[\text s] &\sf T \\ \text{mass} &m &[\text{kg}] &\sf M \\ \text{temperature} &T &[\text K] &\sf \Theta \\ \text{amount} &n &[\text{mol}] &\sf N \\ \text{charge} &q &[\text{C}] &\sf Q \\ \text{luminosity} &I &[\text {cd}] &\sf J \\ \hline \end{array}$  $\large\text{Fundamental Quantities}\\ \begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|} \hline\textbf{Variable} &\textbf{Symbol}&\textbf {SI unit} &\textbf{Dimension} \\ \hline\text{length} &\ell &[\text m] &\sf L \\ \text{time} &t &[\text s] &\sf T \\ \text{mass} &m &[\text{kg}] &\sf M \\ \text{temperature} &T &[\text K] &\sf \Theta \\ \text{amount} &n &[\text{mol}] &\sf N \\ \text{charge} &q &[\text{C}] &\sf Q \\ \text{luminosity} &I &[\text {cd}] &\sf J \\ \hline \end{array}$ However if you are creating a document use float package and {tabular}, and {table} also use package {siunitx} for si units ect  \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{amsmath} % Mathematics \usepackage[alsoload=hep]{siunitx} % SI units \usepackage{float} % Figures and Tables \begin{document} \begin{table}[h!]\centering \caption{Fundamental Quantities} \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|} \hline\rule{0pt}{3.2ex}\bf Variable &\bf Symbol &\bf SI unit &\bf Dimension\\ \hline\rule{0pt}{3ex} length &$\ell$ &[\metre] &\sf L \\ \rule{0pt}{3ex} time &$t$ &[\second] &\sf T \\ \rule{0pt}{3ex} mass &$m$ &[\kilogram] &\sf M \\ \rule{0pt}{3ex} temperature &$T$ &[\kelvin] &$\sf \Theta$ \\ \rule{0pt}{3ex} moles &$n$ &[\mole] &\sf N \\ \rule{0pt}{3ex} charge &$q$ &[\coulomb] &\sf Q \\ \rule{0pt}{3ex} luminosity &$I$ &[\candela] &\sf J \\ \hline\end{tabular} \end{table} \end{document}

I found a much more elegant way of sizing those rows, without all those ugly invisible lines (the \rule{0pt}{3ex}s), just put this in your preamble \renewcommand {\arraystretch}{1.5} source :The Not So Short Introduction to LATEX2ε  \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{amsmath} % Mathematics \usepackage[alsoload=hep]{siunitx} % SI units \usepackage{float} % Figures and Tables % Table parameters % \renewcommand {\arraystretch} {1.5} % row height \renewcommand {\tabcolsep} {0.15cm} % column width \begin{document} \begin{table}[h!]\centering \caption{Fundamental Quantities} \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|} \hline \bf Variable &\bf Symbol &\bf SI unit &\bf Dimension \\ \hline length &$\ell$ &[\metre] &\sf L \\ time &$t$ &[\second] &\sf T \\ mass &$m$ &[\kilogram] &\sf M \\ \hline\end{tabular} \end{table} \end{document}
