Here is an online carbonation calculator:
Remember, the volume you are bottling is NOT 5 gallons. A mistake I used to make is to not consider my FINAL volume. 3/4 of a cup of corn sugar in 4.5 gallons can be quite bubbly
I also finally got my bottle carbonation correct when I got a scale and weighed out the sugar or DME (makes a creamier IMO head).
