Hey, how do I write an equation without the text looking all garbled up:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

\begin{equation}

\frac{\partial u}{\partial x} + \frac{\partial w}{\partial z} = 0 with u = v_{x} and w = v_z

\end{equation}

I don't want to use $ $ since I want this eqn centered and numbered but with text immediately following the major expression.
