We took 120 results and they look promising. On a histogram of charge vs frequency there appear two peaks that the data cluster around. The difference between these peaks should give an indication of the unit of charge that we're trying to determine. Similarly on a graph displaying the calcculated radius of the droplet vs charge, there are distinct clusters centrered around a common charge value (yet to be determined).

I'm now wondering how to go about looking into error. There are so many ways to approach the analysis and I was wondering if anyone who may have performed the experiment themselves could comment on what they think is the best method. Should I use a Gaussian approximation to the histogram?

Would be very grateful for advice and can elaborate on any details you need
