(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two equal sized spherical conductors are connected with a wire. Charge is placed in one conductor. What is the electric field look like?

2. Relevant equations

E=q/4pi*ep*r^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I think that since these two conductors are connected by a wire, that they would have to share the charge. There would be electric field lines coming out of each sphere and that each sphere would have 1/2 of the total charge that was placed in the first sphere. Is this the correct way to reason this problem? Thanks!
