I am looking for a chart or formula for calculating the angles for tapered stave bowl construction. I have seen them where you put in the height,diameters,and number of staves,etc and it calculates the angles. Can anyone help me ?

How many staves?

Divide 360 by the number of staves and the answer is your angle in degrees.

Not quite, the miter will be half of that angle.
