Em question - effects of wires

  1. Mar 18, 2006 #1
    I'm a little confused about what happens when we connect two objects by a wire. Does this just equal the potentials, or does it equal the charges? Also, does this depend on the nature of the objects (is it different for e.g conductors or capacitors?)

    thanks for your help

    when you connect 2 objects by wire, it means that they get equal potentials.
