A sphere conductor of radius 18 cm has potential 27 Volt. Another sphere conductor has potential 18 Volt. Both of them are connected and the combined potential is 24 Volt. Find:

a. the charge of second sphere

b. the charge of each sphere now

2. Relevant equations

Q = CV

V = kQ / r

3. The attempt at a solution

a.

V_{1}= k.Q_{1}/ r_{1}

27 = 9 x 10^{9}x Q_{1}/ (18 x 10^{-2})

Q_{1}= 5.4 x 10^{-10}C

Then I don't know how to continue.....:grumpy:
