Question

Imagine an alternate reality where the Thomson cathode ray experiments arrived at an electron charge to mass ratio of 7.06×106 C/g. During the Milikan oil drop experiment, a series of droplets had excess charges of 1.77×10-19 C, 2.66×10-19 C and 4.43×10-19 C. What could be the mass of an electron?
