Millikan Oil Drop Experiment Kit

Adjusting and measuring the voltage

Determining the temperature of the droplet

Viewing chamber computations of the charge of an electron

Using a projection microscope with the Millikan oil drop apparatus


By doing this experiment you will be testing electric charge carried by a particle may be calculated by measuring the force experienced by the particle in an electric field of known strength. Although this experiment will allow the total charge on a drop to be measured, it is only through an analysis of the data obtained and a certain degree of experimental skill that the charge of a single electron can be determined. Join us to test Millikan oil drop experiment.
