Steve Koch 12:59, 14 December 2009 (EST): Excellent report, John! I liked seeing the analysis with the simulated data (though I couldn't see how many droplets were included). I wonder if Figure 7 would show a more dramatic transition if you used a huge amount of droplets? Or, I wonder how it behaves as a function of number of drops. For example, with an infinite number of drops, aren't you bound to get one data point which makes it appear as though there is half-e charge? Hmmm. In any case, I found this very fascinating. There are some style and typo kinds of things I'd point out as far as formal report goes, but I don't think it's worth detracting from the excellent job you did with this lab and analysis of your algorithm. Thanks for the great work! PS, I posted a link to your report on FriendFeed, hoping that someone with more math knowledge than me can comment on your algorithm: http://friendfeed.com/stevekoch/4d252b4e/john-callow-fun-mathematical-analysis-of
