Voltage remain same on both sphere?

  1. Mar 21, 2013 #1
    When two spheres A and B (having different radius and different charge on their) connected

    through a conducting wires. Then WHY their electric potential remains same i.e Va = Vb on

    both the sphere.

    In simple terms, voltage is analogous to pressure, so current flows until the pressures are equal.
