J.J. Thomson's cathode-ray tube experiment
demonstrated that:
 

1. cathode rays are streams of negatively
charged ions
2. all the mass of an atom is essentially in the nucleus
3. the e/m of electrons is much greater
than the e/m of protons
4. the e/m ratio of the cathode ray particles changes when a different gas is
placed in the discharge tube
