The equation seems appropriate. My concern is the coding in the excell spreadsheet in which leaving out the parenthesis makes a significant difference.
Without the parenthesis in the denominator the numerator is only divided by "W" and not "(W*(t^2/6)).
The author may have multiplied t instead of squared t as well.
In the denominator of the last equation it has "(W*(t2/6)"...
Is that t^2 or t*2?
Also in the excell equation is leaves out a set of parenthesis.
These two possible errors results in dramatic changes in the equation.
