erlang VM memory utilization

Let's say there are two independent erlang processes
started on the same machine from two different terminals
under the same user (uid) context.

Given the scenario, here are my queries -

1. how many VM instances are running ?

2. does the second VM try to connect to the first instance
   and share the memory structures that load the base library ?

3. assuming one VM consumes x Mb of memory to load the base library
   then does running two VM instance consume 2x Mb of memory ?

Would be thankful if experienced members could share some insight
on the memory utilization issue.

Thanks in advance.
