Unique Formula Per Sura Chart

The Unique Formula by Sura chart shows how many formulae of a given type are unique to each sura (e.g. only appear in one particular sura). It looks like this:

1 Formula Type and Length to Show. This allows you to customise the type of formulae that Qur’an Gateway counts and shows in the chart below. (The length is the number of Arabic words in a formula; the type allows you to choose from any of the three formula types that Qur’an Gateway understands, or to choose ‘All Formula Types’ to count them all.
2 Suras to Show. By clicking the buttons, you can choose whether to plot every sura, just Meccan suras, or just Medinan suras on the chart.
3 Count. You can either have the chart count every occurrence (of formulae unique to each sura), or to count occurrences per 100 words.
4 Sort By. You can either sort your chart by sura (so sura 1 is drawn first and sura 114 last), or you can sort your chart by number of formulae used (meaning suras with a higher number of unique formulae will appear first).

Chart Columns. Point your mouse at a column and Qur’an Gateway will show you a tooltip with the exact value in it. You can also click a column to “drill down” and see a list of all the formulae in the sura.
