    Experiments to Verify  Properties of Charges Faraday’s Ice-Pail Experiment Concluded a charged object suspended inside a  metal container causes a rearrangement of  charge on the container in such a manner that  the sign of the charge on the inside surface of  the container is opposite the sign of the charge  on the suspended object Millikan Oil-Drop Experiment Measured the elementary charge, e Found every charge had an integral multiple of e q = n e
