gells for flourecent bulbs

I may have to use a situation with a flourecent cool white light (cool white bulbs). What gel do I need to change the color temp to 3200K?

It's not an exact science, despite what theory may dictate.
Try Roscolux #3411 - "Roscosun 3/4 CTO", or
Roscolux #3407 - "Roscosun CTO".
You should have some Roscolux #3314 - "tough 1/4 minusgreen" handy also.

Cool white lamps are about 3400k

I find it best to use Rosco 3314 gels - 1/4 Minusgreen
As the name implies it reduces the green wavelengths in cool white lamps. The gels are magenta in color
