Subject: Expression Calculation: expression = formula?


I am trying to work out a normative statement from current 2.2 
Expression Calculation.

I stumble over sentences like: "Any formula is an expression that 
produces a result."

So, is an expression that doesn't produce a result not a formula?

Or are the terms expression and formula meant to be interchangeable in 
all cases?

My operating assumption is that they are equivalent.

So, why not just pick one? I am indifferent to which one.

I have several questions but will separate them for clarity's sake.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
