On what basis can one assume that the mass of an electron is much less than the mass of a hydrogen atom?

Thomson’s experiments established that the ratio of the electric charge of each of the particles of the cathode rays to its mass is the same value for all particles. If we assume that the charge of this particle is equal to the elementary charge, then its mass is approximately 1870 less than the mass of a hydrogen atom.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
