I know that the definition of eV is the energy gained by one electron accelerated through one volt: (E = Vq)

And I therefore believe we can define the Joule as the energy gained by one coulomb of charge accelerated through one volt.

To convert eV to joules, all we would have to do is convert the charge of an electron to coulomb?

Thanks,
