## Homework Statement

1. Two solid metal spheres are very far apart: sphere A (radius 44.1 cm) is charged to potential +2,346 Volts; sphere B (radius 63.6 cm) is charged to potential +8,848. Now, a long conducting wire connects the two spheres. When the charge has stopped moving, find the new charge on sphere A, in μC.

## Homework Equations

v1=kq1/r1 v2=kq/r2

## The Attempt at a Solution

since there are connected by a conducting wire both of the spheres will have the same potential thus :

v1+v2 / 2 = 5597 V

then:

5597= kq1/r1

q1= .275 μc

im not sure about this so any help will be appreciated !
