Insert a new line in TeXShop

  1. Nov 21, 2010 #1
    I'm having the following problem in TeXShop - how can I put two equations in two separate lines?
    Thus far I have something like:

    Code (Text):
     p_y = s \cos \alpha \\
     p_x = s \sin \alpha
    But I still get the two on the same line..
    Help would be very much appreciated

    You need to use one of the multiline environments.
    The most basic of which is array (used inside \[\])
    The best is probably (as long as you're using the amsmath package)
    Code (Text):
     p_y &= s \cos \alpha \\
     p_x &= s \sin \alpha
    where the ampersands (&) are alignment markers.
    This produces
    p_y &= s \cos \alpha \\
    p_x &= s \sin \alpha
