## Homework Statement

The problem states:

2 concentric shells made out of conductive materials as in the diagram. R2/ R1 = 6. If the shells were charged with a total charge of 100 nc the connected with a wire, Then the final charge on both shells would be?

1) 33.3, 66.7 2) 30, 70 3) 20, 80 4) 50,50 5) 14.3,85.7

## Homework Equations

Voltage at both end points of the wire should be the same

## The Attempt at a Solution

Shouldn't all the charge go to the outer shell? So it will be 0, 100

The solution provided used this formula:

Q1/ Q2 = R1/R2

Where we only used this formula for the case of two really far conducting shells connected with a wire.

Exam tomorrow, Thank you in advance.
