How do I create a horizontal space between 8 turns and 6 seconds?

$$\left(\frac{8 turns}{6 seconds}\right)$$

for a single space, simply type \;

$$\left(\frac{8\;turns}{6\;seconds}\right)$$

Does that work for most sites that use LaTeX?

I would imagine so, it is a standard latex command. Alternatively, if you need a larger space you can use the \hspace{ x in} where x is the number of inches space you require.
