# Flow of charge between two spheres

Lets say I have two spheres of equal dimensions, one charged and one uncharged. Now I connect them with a conducting wire. They will now very quickly reach equal potential. Can it be said that the total charge on each sphere remains almost unchanged?

No.

No.
Will the total charges be equal?

I forgot to mention that the spheres are conductors.

I can see now that the equality of charges follows from the uniqueness theorem.
