Solution: 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 10-16
24.42 10-16
32.21 10-16
44.98 10-16
56.64 10-16

Based on these observations, what is the largest possible value for the charge on a blorvek?

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 10-16
24.42 10-16
32.21 10-16
44.98 10-16
56.64 10-16


Based on these observations, what is the largest possible value for the charge on a blorvek?

Solution

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

Droplet NumberCharge (C)
17.74 10-16
24.42 10-16
32.21 10-16
44.98 10-16
56.64 10-16


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