The calculator relates six variables. You provide five of them and it calculates the sixth.

You need to answer the following question: what do you want it to calculate ?

Then you need to provide data for all the other five variables. From your statement you already have:
LED height = 48
Cone angle = 30

If you can get the value of three more variables, the calculator will give you the value of the sixth.
