What is the definition of electric potential? The problem tells you how much the electron's electric potential will change. How much will its potential energy change? How much will its kinetic energy change? Assume the electron starts at test. How much velocity does it acquire?hotstuff said:

see above URL page to find (for charge initially at rest):

(work done on charge q by potential difference ΔV) = (1/2)mv
