What is Formula:
A formula is a conventional practical method or procedure that, based on certain symbols, rules, steps and / or values, allows solving problems or executing processes in an orderly and systematic way, in order to obtain a specific and controlled result.
The word comes from Latin formula, which means "rule" or "framework". Therefore, a formula is made up of a series of patterns and rules on whose follow-up the solution of an issue depends.
The term formula It is applicable in different areas, from the world of science to social relations. Let's look at some types of formulas.
Formula in calculus science
In science, they are called formulas to the set of basic operations that, by means of symbols and numerical values, allow to solve calculation operations and obtain concrete results.
Formulas in science can be mathematical formulas, geometric formulas, physical formulas, chemical formulas, statistical formulas, among others. These types of formulas are usually represented by equations.
In mathematics, the use of formulas or equations to calculate fractions, powers, the metric system, derivatives, integrals, etc. are frequent.
Formula for calculating fractions
In geometry, formulas are used to calculate angles, vectors, areas, etc. Example:
In physics, formulas allow you to project data such as weight, motion, speed, mass, volume, force, and acceleration of bodies. Example:
Formula to calculate the speed, distance and time of movement of a body.
In chemistry, formulas represent elements that together make a compound, as well as the number of atoms it contains. For example, the formula for water: H2O, which represents two molecules of hydrogen for one of oxygen.
Statistics and social sciences apply formulas to estimate the needs of the community. They allow the calculation of population density, death or birth rates, GDP, GDP per capita, etc.
See also Statistics.
Pharmacological formulas refer to the components and amounts thereof that a certain substance must contain to produce a specific effect.
In addition to the general pharmacological formulas, there are the magisterial formulas. By magisterial formula it refers to those medicines or chemical products such as creams, ointments or drops, which have been designed for the needs of a specific patient, by medical prescription.
By courtesy formulas, it refers to the set of symbols and special attentions that are applied in dealing with third parties, so that they feel comfortable, respected and valued.
It is known by the name of Formula 1 to the most prestigious world motorsport championship. It was founded in 1950. Teams such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Toro Rosso, Renault, Haas, Force India, Sauber, Red Bull, McLaren and Williams participate in this championship.
