    I absolutely hated the last question! The more I think about it the worse I think I did but a lot of people in my year have also said timing was an issue

    I wrote something similar although I didn't specify about middle lamella etc. We did hardly any work about eyepiece so was a bit gutted it came up tbh.
    Did anyone else get 8 micrometers for each eyepiece unit and 39.5% for the soil moisture?

    I wrote exactly the same for the graticule question except the middle lamella part and yeah I got 8 micrometers, can't remember what I got for the moisture question though. What value did everyone get for the water potential question?

    I heard ones that got -1400 so i think it might just depend on your line of best fit
