# Raise/lower equation number

Need to raise/lower equation number using tex macros given point value as variable.

Please find MWE file: \documentclass{book}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
If the car in figure has a linear acceleration parallel to the ground, a point on the tyre's outer edge experiences a tangential acceleration relative to the axle. The same kind of reasoning as that used in the previous paragraph reveals that the magnitudes of these accelerations are the same and that they are related to the angular acceleration of the wheel relative to the axle.
\begin{align}%%\raisetag{30pt}
\begin{array}{ll}
\underset{\text{Linear speed}}{\underbrace{v}}=\underset{\text{Tangential speed}}{\underbrace{v_{\mathrm{T}}=r\omega }} & \left(\omega \text{~in~}\mathrm{rad}/\mathrm{s}\right)\end{array}%
\tag{8.12}%%\eqnoraise{30pt}{\tag{8.12}}
\end{align}

• the problem here is the mis-use of array which is vertically centred so moving the = off the math axis for the equation. Jun 17, 2020 at 18:12

You don't need array. I also suggest using a command for textual subscripts to an underbrace. In order to get the two aligned, a phantom in the first one is needed.

Also consider siunitx for getting uniform rendering of units.

\newcommand{\textubrace}{{\underbrace{#1}_{\text{#2}}}}

If the car in figure has a linear acceleration parallel to the ground,
a point on the tyre's outer edge experiences a tangential acceleration
relative to the axle. The same kind of reasoning as that used in the
previous paragraph reveals that the magnitudes of these accelerations
are the same and that they are related to the angular acceleration of
the wheel relative to the axle.
\begin{equation}
\textubrace{v_{\vphantom{T}}}{Linear speed}=
\textubrace{v_{\mathrm{T}}=r\omega}{Tangential speed}
\end{equation}

\end{document} You can set the vertical alignment in your array with \begin{array}[t]{ll} • Correct in this case, my request need to vertical move "equation number" slightly up and down for different type of multiple equation. Jun 17, 2020 at 15:23
