Robert Millikan



Robert Millikan's 1909 experiment "was the accurate determination of the [size of the] charge carried by an electron, using the elegant "falling-drop method"; he also showed that this quantity was a constant for all electrons (1910), thus demonstrating the atomic structure of electricity." <ref>The Nobel Foundation</ref> The experiment is known as the Millikan Oil Drop Experiment.
