jQuery scrollTop not scrolling far enough on mobile

I'm very new to JS and jQuery. Forgive me if my code isn't the best, but I'm still working through the modules.

I created a page where I have a bunch of hidden divs. When I click a link, I want to make the div visible, and scroll to it. I achieved it like this: $("#portOne").click(function() { $("#proj1").fadeToggle("slow").toggleClass("hidden"); $("#proj2").addClass("hidden"); $("#proj3").addClass("hidden"); $("#proj4").addClass("hidden"); $("#proj5").addClass("hidden"); $("#proj6").addClass("hidden"); $("#proj7").addClass("hidden"); $("#proj8").addClass("hidden"); $("html, body").animate({ scrollTop: $("#proj1").offset().top + 200 }, 500); })

I'm guessing it scrolls to the top of the page, and then moves down 200px? That's fine on my laptop, but on mobile, it doesn't scroll far enough. It doesn't actually scroll to the div, because the div is now further down the page than 200px.

What's the solution for this? What am I missing? Please help!
