    Millikan did two famous experiments. One measured the charge on the electron. The other verified Einstein's theoretical work on the photoelectric effect, and in doing so, measured Planck's constant.

    The charged electron is 1.602*10^-19, right??
    What are all the multiples of that and how would you find that?
