    Please show how to solve the following problem:
    Repeat Millikan's oil drop experiment using a unit of your own devising (B) rather than the unit of Coulombs. You measure the charges on 4 different drops labeled a, b,c, d. You determine that drop a has charge 13.52 B, drop b has charge 3.359 B, drop c has charge 10.21 B, and drop d has charge 6.777 B. Use this data to estimate the charge on the electron in units of B, and report your answer to the appropriate number of significant figures
