If so I would be very grateful if you could tell me the formula.

W means whole step, H means half step. Root, W, H, W, W, H, W, W gives a natural minor scale. For example —

The diatonic scale is obtained from a chain of six successive fifths. ... It is either a sequence of successive natural notes (such as the C-major scale, C–D–E–F–G–A–B, or the A-minor scale, A–B–C–D–E–F–G) or a transposition thereof.
So for the C major scale, the relative minor scale is Am scale.
If you insist on a Cm scale, this would be the relative minor of the Eb major scale. Hence.
Cm scale is C-D-Eb-F-G-Ab-Bb-C.
A Diatonic Scale is made from the following note intervals
2-2-1 -2- 2-2-1
The Relative minor is made from the following intervals
2-1-2 -2-1-2 -2
