# Problem: In an alternate universe, the smallest negatively charged particle, analogous to our electron, is called a blorvek. To determine the charge on a single blorvek, an experiment like Millikans with charged oil droplets was carried out and the following results were recorded:Droplet NumberCharge (C)17.74 10-1624.42 10-1632.21 10-1644.98 10-1656.64 10-16Based on these observations, what is the largest possible value for the charge on a blorvek?

We’re being asked to determine the largest possible value for the charge on a blorvek from the given data

 Droplet Number Charge (C) 1 7.74 10-16 2 4.42 10-16 3 2.21 10-16 4 4.98 10-16 5 6.64 10-16

We will calculate that charge by dividing the total charge by the charge of 1 negative charge.
