The Brainliest Answer!
In 1897, a British physicist named j.j Thomson discovered electrons through his cathode ray experiments. thomson made these cathode rays by firing electrical currents through glass like pipes filled with low density  gas , thomson measured the ratio of the weight/mass of the cathode ray to its electrical charge.what he found was that the ratio was always the same of what elemental gas was in the pipe.these results indicated that the current inside the cathode ray tubes was made of tiny particles that carried negative charge/-ve. He named these particles electrons.
