I am having trouble aligning/setting up my variable definitions in my paper. I have attached a picture of my current results. enter image description here

So this is a two column paper and the results I have shown go in one column. Notice that the spacings are not aligned. The latex code that I have written is the following

Any help in getting everything lined up correctly would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the site. Please add the code so that we can copy paste and test. Make it compilable too (starting from \documentclass{}... and ending at \end{document}. You can use a tabular for this job. – user11232 Sep 2 '15 at 5:43
% arara: pdflatex


where for (1)--(4)
    \hspace{2cm} \= \hspace{3cm} \kill
    $P(t),Q(t)$ \> current time measure.....\\
    $V(t),F(t)$ \> current time measure.....\\
or alternatively\par\noindent
    P(t),Q(t) & current time measure.....\\
    V(t),F(t) & current time measure.....\\

Or you use some package like nomencl or glossaries for things like this.
