A parallel plate capacitor is air filled and assumed to be ideal. It is connected to a battery so it has constant potential difference. By what factor does stored energy change if the charge is doubled..

The attempt at a solution

Using the formula U = 0.5QV..

If charge is doubled, then U is doubled correct?

I say the answer is stored energy is doubled, but the answer at the back reckons quadrupled. Who is right?
