# How to display full table contents

I'm trying to fill a table with equations, but some of the equations are so long that the table is cut off completely on the right side. I just started working with latex yesterday so my knowledge is pretty minimal at this point. Does anyone have a suggestion for how to fix this? I'm guessing that it is not ideal to just make the font super small, nor do I really want to split the table unless it's completely necessary.

Here is what I have for the table so far:

    \begin{table}[h!]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{c|c|c|c|c|c|c}
Time & $F_{in}$ & $F_{out}$ & k$_w$ & M & CO$_2$ & CO$_2$ \\
(kyr) & (Gton kyr$^{-1}$) &  (Gton kyr$^{-1}$) &  (kyr$^{-1}$) & (Gton)&

(Gton) & (ppmv)\\\hline65,000 & 100&0.1 & 0.1176 & $1.3043\times 10^{8}$& 596 & 280\\ & & & & & &\\\hline
sort(($0:25:65000$)','descend') &$F_{in}\times ones(\frac{t1-t2+25}{25},1)$ &$K\times elevation$ &

\tfrac{F_{in}}{Elevation}$&$SA \times elevation$&$\left ( M(t) \div

M(0)))\right )^{2}\times pCO_{2}(0)) \ast 10^{-6} (\frac{12}

{.78(28)+.21(32)+.01(40)})\ast 5.14\ast 10^{21}g\ast \frac{1Gton}

{10^{15}g} &\\& & & & & &\\ \end{tabular} \label{tab:boxmodel} \end{table}  It is only the last equation that is getting cut off, since it is super long. I'd appreciate any feedback or links to similar questions. Thanks! • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please show us a compilable version of your document that has this issue. Remove all unnecessary extra parts, only the table with equations – user31729 Feb 6, 2016 at 15:55 • Welcome to TeX SE! If I have understood your problem, your best option would be to align equations inserting line breaks, so you have still beauty with a proper display of the equation. But as Christian noted, it'd be easier for other users to take a look at your code concerning the table.

Feb 6, 2016 at 19:39 ## 1 Answer You can have a solution swapping rows and columns and loading makecell for line breaks in cells. Here is a possible layout. In addition, I loaded siunitx to format coherently the (nonstandard) units in this table, and mhchem to have a simpler code for chemical formulae. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage[showframe]{geometry} \usepackage{array, tabularx, makecell, boldline} \renewcommand\cellalign{tc} \usepackage{siunitx} \usepackage[version=4]{mhchem} \DeclareSIUnit\ton{ton} \DeclareSIUnit\Gton{\giga\ton} \DeclareSIUnit\ppmv{ppmv} \DeclareSIUnit\yr{{yr}} \DeclareSIUnit\kyr{{\kilo\yr}} \begin{document} \begin{table}[h!] \centering% \setlength\tabcolsep{4pt} \setcellgapes{1.5ex}\makegapedcells \begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{V{2.5}c V{2.5}c|X V{2.5}} \Xhline{1pt} \makecell{Time \\(\si{\kyr})} & 65,000 & sort((0:25:65000$)','descend') \\ \hline \makecell{$F_\text{in}$\\ (\si{\Gton\per\kyr})}& 100 &$ F_\text{in}\times ones\Bigl(\dfrac{t1-t2+25}{25},1\Bigr)$\\ \hline \makecell{$F_\text{out}$\\ (\si{\Gton\per\kyr})}& 0.1 &$ K\times \text{elevation} $\\ \hline \makecell{ k\textsubscript{w} \\ (\si{\per\kyr})}& 0.1176 &$ \dfrac{F_\text{in}}{\text{Elevation}}$\\ \hline \makecell{M \\ (\si{\Gton})}& \num{1.3043E8} &$ SA \times \text{elevation}$\\ \hline \makecell[tc]{\ce{CO2} \\ (\si\Gton)}& 596 &$\begin{aligned}[t]
