    I went diverging in order to make the virtual image, but was unsure about the focal length, so just guessed 100mm

    I out diverging cause it was virtual, and 150mm.
    But I got the wrong focal point because I was supposed to use -1/v as the image was virtual

    For the five marker i used the formula

    and got the answer to be around 6.37 x 10^something which was within the range.

    I got like 6.2*10^-3 for 2 of the strings so it was in the range

    For the lens one u=100mm v=-300mm(virtual so (-) ) and then used that in the equation i got 150mm and it was converging cause the focal length was positive
    For the mass/length one i got that it was 6.(something)x10 to the -3 so it was in the range.
    Did anybody else get these?
