Hey y'all I am trying to format Maxwell's equations like the image below but without the box. I also want to be able to reference the labels, thanks!

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! What have you tried? Is there something specific you don't know how to do?

Welcome! This is to give you a start. All I did was to employ this answer, to use the leqno option to move the equation numbers to the left and change the numbering scheme to become roman.

Equations \eqref{eq:Maxwell1}--\eqref{eq:Maxwell4} are\par
    \bm{\nabla}\cdot\bm{D} &=4\pi\rho_{f}\;,\label{eq:Maxwell1}
    \vphantom{\frac{\partial\bm{B}}{\partial t}}\\
    \bm{\nabla}\cdot\bm{B} &=0\;,\vphantom{\frac{\partial\bm{B}}{\partial t}}\label{eq:Maxwell2}
    \bm{\nabla}\times\bm{E} &=-\frac{\partial\bm{B}}{\partial t}\;,\label{eq:Maxwell3}
    \bm{\nabla}\times\bm{H} &=\bm{J}_f
    +\frac{\partial\bm{D}}{\partial t}\;.\label{eq:Maxwell4}

Equation \eqref{eq:Maxwell1} is \dots

For the future I'd kindly ask you to show us what you have tried. That spares others from punching in these equations.

  • Wow thank you so much! Sorry about that I'll make sure to post my attempt next time. Apr 5, 2020 at 5:00
