First off, you need to determine if you can add extra RAM.

Second, if you can, an increase to 4GB or 8GB will be a huge benefit over your current 2GB.
 
Yes a ram upgrade wil help that system in most tasks. I would upgrade to 4gb as tasks that can use 8gb, such as a buch of chrome tabs, would be limited by the 2 threaded cpu.
However, I have a laptop with a n3050 cpu and 2gb of ram and the ram is non expandable. Make sure there is a way to expand the ram on that computer.

"DDR3L 1600 MHz SDRAM, up to 8 G"

Something like this:

Or this in 4GB:

MERGED QUESTION
Question from backsnoob : "how performance increase"



More RAM will only help if you're currently running out of RAM. It won't increase the performance otherwise. If you need an increase in performance, you'll need new hardware; this is a very entry-level CPU intended mostly for surfing the web and sending emails.
