Two approximate formulas, based on the energy density functional formalism, show that the nuclear symmetry energy J and the density symmetry coefficient L depend essentially on , while the volume energy a1 and the incompressibility coefficient K0 depend essentially on , where , and are the neutron and the proton chemical potentials, the nuclear energy, and the Coulomb energy. The data fit to the measured nuclear masses gives , , , and .
