No, that's for a different situation.

What you need to do is find the MAC or Mean Aerodynamic Chord for your swept wing. That gives you the position and size of the wing chord as it would be if you had a simple rectangular wing with no sweep.

The online CG caluculators for regular models have boxes you fill in which sets the amount of sweep back and figures out the MAC and all the other things for you. Just fill in the details requested.

Here's a good one to use with the factors that will work with the sweep angle.
