**1. Homework Statement**

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

**2. Homework 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!
