What is polymeres?
a polymer is a plastic. a monomer is a chain of molecules which are alkenes as they have a double covalent bond in them. This monomer is then heated and the double covalent bonds break and join with others to make a longer chain of molecules. this is a polymer-plastic. to find out the name of a polymer add poly to the name of the monomer e.g. ethene is a monomer and when it is heated it makes polyethene which is a plastic.

What is the chemical formula of the monomer and the polymer?
Those are two general terms, so there is no chemical formula. A polypeptide is for instance a polymer where it consists of amino acids (monomer). Same with polyester which consists of esters (monomer). Being more specific, ethylene has the formula CH2=CH2 and when polymerized into a polymer would be (--CH2-CH2--)N where N is a very large number. The same principle applies to many monomers and polymers.
