I am wondering what the formula would be for the amount of Dark Energy in the observable universe would be for different time (t). (according to best current theory/data)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would it be this directly proportional to volume?

Dark energy (t) = Dark energy (present time)/ (scale factor (t)^{3})

If so, 6GY ago scale factor = 1.618 therefore Dark Energy would be about 1/4 the current amount.

I could be way off as I am just starting on this stuff.
