# using but cannot align equation and want to show only one number of equation

I want to write these equations using the , however can't align them to the left side and want to put only one reference number for them

$$\begin{split} S=-\frac{1}{2}\rho v \delta \left(\frac{\ mu}{pF}\right)^{1/2} e \sin{\theta} \\ T = -\frac{1}{2}\rho v \delta \left(\frac{\mu}{pF}\right)^{1/2} \left( 1+e \cos{\theta}- r\alpha \left(\frac{p}{\mu}\right)^{1/2} \cos{i} \right) \end{split}$$


this is the output of my code

but i want to align my equations like in the following picture

help me thanks :)

• What you is left-aligned, or do I misunderstand what you want? Commented Jul 17, 2019 at 14:13
• I also have some trouble understanding your question. Could you show a screenshot of the output you have now, and a mockup screenshot of the output that you want to have? Commented Jul 17, 2019 at 14:50
• edited , the first picture is my output , the second picture is the output that i want Commented Jul 17, 2019 at 15:16

Your code doesn't produce the image.

However, use the proper markup:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

$$\begin{split} S &= -\frac{1}{2}\rho v \delta \left(\frac{\mu}{pF}\right)^{\!1/2} e \sin\theta \\ T &= -\frac{1}{2}\rho v \delta \left(\frac{\mu}{pF}\right)^{\!1/2} \biggl( 1+e \cos\theta- r\alpha \left(\frac{p}{\mu}\right)^{\!1/2} \cos i \biggr) \\ W &= -\frac{1}{2}\rho v \delta \frac{r\alpha}{\sqrt{F}}\sin i \cos(\omega+\theta) \end{split}$$

\end{document}


Note that I changed \left( and \right) to \biggl( and \biggr) that produce correctly sized fences. Also \sin{\theta} can be more simply \sin\theta.

I also added a negative thin space to the exponents, in order not to have them too far from the parenthesis.

My humble proposal. You can replace each of your equations with a, b, c, d and e.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Name}
\begin{aligned} a&= b \\ c&= d \\ e&= f \end{aligned}
\end{document}


For example:

S& =-\frac{1}{2}\rho v \delta \left(\frac{\mu}{pF}\right)^{1/2} e \sin\theta \\


instead of a&= b
