In Millikan's experiment, the charge on each drop of oil was measured in coulombs. Imagine the same experiment, but with charges measured in a fictitious unit called a zeet ().
Drop Charge ()
A 1.38×10−14
B 3.22×10−14
C 3.68×10−14
D 4.14×10−14
E 5.98×10−14

What is the charge on an electron in zeets?
