I want to write symbols in the math mode in the normal font as the text. A picture for the same is attached. The code for the math mode is as follows.

'''$14,\mu m {\times} 95 , {\mu} m$'''

I want the math mode in between the line to follow the same font as the text outside math mode.

  • Off topic: I'd recommend siunitx-package for writing numbers with units, e.g. $\SI{14}{\micro\metre}\times\SI{95}{\micro\metre}$. It provides correct spacing and prints units upright. Apr 8, 2021 at 16:08

A mixture of mathmode and text is always a bit tricky. Since you are not talking about maths specifically, but numbers with units I would suggest you try the siunitx package with the detect-all=true option.


    \textbf{Some text \SI{14}{\micro\meter} $\bm{\times}$ \SI{95}{\micro\metre}.}
    \textbf{Some text \SI{14}{$\upmu$\meter} $\bm{\times}$ \SI{95}{$\upmu$\metre}.}

Note how I used the upgreek package to demonstrate two methods of implementing the µ in µm. Which one you like better is of course up to you. Just don't mix them.

Most mathematical symbols do not come in a bold version, but there a few packages that help with that. I used \bm here, but also have look at this overview: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/99286/118712
