Suppose a scientist repeats the Millikan oil-drop experiment
but reports the charges on the drops using an unusual (and
imaginary) unit called the warmomb (wa). The scientist obtains
the following data for four of the drops:
Droplet Calculated Charge (wa)
A 3.84 * 10-8
B 4.80 * 10-8
C 2.88 * 10-8
D 8.64 * 10-8
(c) Based on your answer to part (b), how many
electrons are there on each of the droplets?
