I get excessive word spacing at the bottom lines of paragraphs ending with \break.

I tried to add \setlength{\parskip}{0pt}, \raggedbottom, loading ragged2e and loading microtype. Nothing seemed to work...

Here is my preamble:

\documentclass[a4paper,8pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage[a4paper, total={7in, 10in}]{geometry}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage[font=small,labelfont=bf]{caption}
\DeclarePairedDelimiter{\ceil}{\lceil}{\rceil}
\setlength{\parindent}{0em}
\newcommand{\R}{\mathbb{R}}

\begin{document}

Anybody can help me with this?

Thank you all in advance!

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Why are you using \break? You should leave an empty line between paragraphs, not use \break. \break doesn't create a paragraph break, as the name may suggest. Rather, it says to TeX that that point is a a place where a line break will look good, so TeX forces a line break there and adds the necessary inter-word spacing to justify the text. – Phelype Oleinik Sep 12 '18 at 14:11
  • I am using \\ to break a line, \break to divide paragraphs, since it provides some spacing between them – Leonardo Sep 12 '18 at 14:18

    No, \\ shouldn't be used either. \break does a line break, but does not end a paragraph. Leave an empty line between each paragraph and it will look better. If you want to change the spacing between paragraphs you can tweak the \parskip. For example, \parskip = 1cm \relax will leave plenty of space between paragraphs. – Phelype Oleinik Sep 12 '18 at 14:22

    I'm voting to close this question as the issue is not shown in the posted code, but has been solved in comments. – David Carlisle Sep 12 '18 at 18:32
