A couple of electric potential "theory" problems OK, so let's say Person A is on Planet A, where the ground potential is 1,000,000 V. Person A touches an object insulated from ground at a potential of 1,000,001 V. Person B is on Planet B, where the ground potential is 0 V. Person B touches an object insulated from ground at a potential of 200 V. Who, if anyone, experiences a shock? My answer is that Person A gets a huge shock and dies and Person B gets a pretty significant shock because the objects are both insulated from ground. Not really sure at all though. The second question is: Work is required to push a solitary electron into an electric field where it attains an electric potential of 1 volt. If you instead psuh 2 electrons through the same path, the electric potential of the two electrons will be: I would assume that the electric potential of the two electrons would be 2 volts. Is this stupid? And finally: The same question as above. But instead the question is, what is the work required to move the electrons? I figure if the electric potential achieved by one electron is one volt, but you instead push two electrons, it would be 2 electronvolts. (I should mention this is multiple choice, the answer possibilities are: 1 eV, 2 eV, 4 eV, 1/2 eV, 1/4 eV). If these answers are wrong, can someone try to point me in the rightish direction?
