87. (a) If we subtract each value from the next larger value in the table, we find a set of numbers which are suggestive of a basic unit of charge: 1.64 × 10 19 , 3.3 × 10 19 , 1.63 × 10 19 , 3.35 × 10 19 , 1.6 × 10 19 , 1.63 × 10 19 , 3.18 × 10 19 , 3.24 × 10 19 , where the SI unit Coulomb is understood. These values are either close to a common 19 1.6 10 C e ≈× value or are double that. Taking this, then, as a crude approximation to our experimental e we divide it into all the values in the original data set and round to the
