(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Work is required to push a solitary electron into an electric field where it attains an electric potential of 1 volt.

a.) If you instead push 2 electrons through the same path, what would the electric potential of the two electrons be? b.) What would the work required to move the electrons be?

2. Relevant equations

I'm not sure, but I think W = qV may be an equation.

3. The attempt at a solution

I am guessing that is it's 2 volts for a.) and 2 electronvolts for b.), but I could be wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated... this is very confusing to me. =( Thanks!
