Homework Statement

Not sure which equations, pretty sure anything goes for find e fields like guass. I'm not even sure of the behavior of the system. Two conducting spheres with a charge on them, the field of each one just be Q/4pi(eps_0)R^2; but there's a wire attaching them?

The conducting wire allows for charge to move from one sphere to another. Eventually things will balance out and the charges stop moving. When this happens what can you say about the potential?
