How did Robert Millikan’s oil drop experiment change scientists’ view of the atom?

Excellent question regarding !
Robert Millikan was able to determine the mass of an electron by using charged oil drops. Electrons have such a small mass, they were believed to be massless. Millikan’s experiment determined that the electrons did, indeed, have mass.
I hope this helps. If you need more information, please let me know.
