    $\begingroup$ Details are on the Wiki, first reference. This is too broad of a question. I think what you might be interested in, from my previous answer, is how did he determine the so-called Faraday constant in his own time. This is the number which allowed e/m. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The answer to your query is in Experimental Electrochemistry By Nevil Monroe Hopkins · 1905. It is beautifully described on page 80 onwards. The book is freely available from Google Books $\endgroup$
