Put the names of the input fields in, say, A1 to A4. Fill in the corresponding values in B1 to B4.

Put the right formula in, say, B6, and magically the answer will appear there once B1 through B4 are filled in. That's the way Excel works.

It's up to you to find the right formula.

Don't me to sound rude, I know how excel works. The formula is where I need some guidance. I should have noted that in my first post.

All I can say:
- do your math and write the formule down on paper
- translate the formula written down to excel syntax

This is not a forum on fresnel functions nor on math, I'm afraid.
