Cathode Ray Discovery of the Electron

J.J. Thomson was experimenting with the cathode ray tube and figured out there is a smaller particle than the atom. Then after his discovery scientist came up with the name electron for this particle smaller than the atom. Even though we discussed this in class I thought it would be interesting to dig  deeper into the experiment of the cathode ray tube. I have made a Prezi with the information I have found.
