The sentence:

Unless we happen to be professional scientists, laboratory experiments and formulae have ceased to have any meaning for most of us.

About "laboratory experiments and formulae", is it:

(a) laboratory experiments + laboratory formulae

or

(b) laboratory experiments + formulae ?

I think it's (b), but I'm not sure on this one...

(b) experiments are done in laboratories, formulae are not.

All the best, :D

I vote for a), but I would not bet on it. In that context, I expect to find formulas in some sort of laboratory anyway.
