    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi, I am writing a lab report, and I have no idea how to come up with a fitting hypothesis for this lab

    Purpose: To determine the relationship among the focal length, the image distance, and the object distance of a converging lens.

    The first thing you should do is use your knowledge of converging lenses to try and predict a relationship. Could you not use some geometrical optics to try and predict what the relationship may be?
