    B. An eV in physics is the amount of kinetic energy gained (or lost) by a single electron accelerating from rest through an electric potential difference of one volt in a vacuum.

      think of it this way ... V = E/charge

      so  multiplying by  a charge of one electron gets you energy it is just a measurement of  energy
