Default SRM -> MCU Conversion Formula??

Greetings. I have a need to convert an existing SRM to MCU. All I can find is how to get SRM from MCU, not MCU from SRM.

If I wasn't an algebraic moron, I could certainly re-calc the formula for SRM:

SRM color = 1.4922 * (MCU ** 0.6859)

Can anyone help? I want to get the MCU from and existing SRM.

Thanks!

MCU = .5577 * (SRM ^ 1.4588)

Yeah, seriously

It took me a minute to remember what ** meant. I haven't seen that since I was programming my Atari.
