Creating a horizontal space in LaTeX;

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

    [tex]\left(\frac{8 turns}{6 seconds}\right)[/tex]

    for a single space, simply type \;

    [tex]\left(\frac{8\;turns}{6\;seconds}\right)[/tex]

    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.
