Problem 129

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 Millikan’s with charged oil droplets was carried out and the following results were recorded:
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}$
(a) Based on these observations, what is the largest possible value for the charge on a blorvek?
(b) Further experiments found a droplet with a charge of $5.81 \times 10^{-16} \mathrm{C}$ . Does this new result change your answer to part (a)? If so, what is the new largest value for the blorvek's charge?
