How much kinetic energy will an electron gain (in joules and eV) if it accelerates through a potential difference of 23,000 V in a TV picture tube?

An electron has a charge `q=-1.6xx10^(-19)C`

Voltage is defined as the electric potential energy per charge i.e

This energy is converted to KE as it accelerates.
`KE=1.6xx10^(-19)xx23000 J`
`=3.68xx10^(-15) J`
