I tried the above code so as to print as it is typed but i need normal font instead of typewriter font.can anyone guide me

  • Can you provide us with your current setup; that is, how are you currently setting the statements in your document? Please create what we call a minimal working example (MWE). – Werner Feb 23 '15 at 17:41
  • I have edited the post .I want as it is now – prabin Feb 23 '15 at 17:45
  • BTW: Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – karlkoeller Feb 23 '15 at 18:15
  • Please read the link Werner provided. That is not an MWE. It is not even a fragment of code... – cfr Feb 24 '15 at 3:28

You can do it with a tabular. This reproduces exactly your image

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{@{}l@{ = }ll}
  E & electric field             & [V/m]\\
  s & integration path           & [m]\\
  V & potential in a point       & [V]\\
  U & voltage between electrodes & [V]
\end{tabular}

\end{document} 

enter image description here

Anyway I would use siunitx package and do it like that (remember that square brackets usually denote physical dimensions):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{siunitx}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{@{}>{$}c<{$}@{ = }ls[per-mode=symbol]}
  E & electric field             & \volt\per\meter \\
  s & integration path           & \meter \\
  V & potential in a point       & \volt \\
  U & voltage between electrodes & \volt
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
