## Main Question or Discussion Point

We have a metal sphere of radius R in the space and resistivity p. At a distance d>R from it we have antoher sphere of metal of radius r<<R and charge q. The 2 spheres intially are at rest.

What is the initial potential energy between them?

Now the sphere accelerate and collide anelastically. What is the amount of heat Q after this process?

P.S

This is NOT an homework, but an entrance exame at the university.

The question it's very intersting and i solved it.

For me is [tex]\frac{1}{4 \pi ε} \frac{q^2}{d}[/tex]

and this is for the proprieties of metals.
