How to omit italics on PF?

  1. Oct 19, 2015 #1
    When I type an expression in LaTeX here in a PF post the text is always in italics. I know nothing about LaTeX but am trying to learn. How do I make the text not be in italics? I want to write SI symbols in upright text, for example.

    I tried to find the answer on the web but all I could find was explanations of how to make the text be in italics!

    Try enclosing them in \mathrm{ }

    Like this: ##\sin px\ \mathrm{kg}##

    Code (LaTeX):

    ##\sin px\ \mathrm{kg}##
    EDIT by Jedi: Added a code block to show exactly what is typed...
