Homework Help: Charge of an electron

  1. Apr 30, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to design an experiment to find the charge of an electron. And I have no idea how. Could somebody give an idea on what I could do?

    You could try Google and search for experiment to measure charge on electron.
    You will probably get plenty of references to Robert Millikan. That could be a good starting point.

    I need experiment that has not be done already. Something similar to Millikan but not the same.
