In science, a **formula** is a concise way of expressing information symbolically, as in a **mathematical formula** or a *chemical formula*. The informal use of the term *formula* in science refers to the general construct of a relationship between given quantities.

The plural of *formula* can be either *formulas* (from the most common English plural noun form) or, under the influence of scientific Latin, *formulae* (from the original Latin).^{[2]}
