Sharing of charge, New charge, Common potential and Energy loss
Sharing of charge
When two conductors joined together through a conducting wire, charge begins to flow from one conductor to other till both have the same potential, due to flow of charge, loss of energy also takes place in the form of heat.
Suppose there are two spherical conductors of radii r1 and r2, having charge Q1 and Q2 respectively. If these two spheres are connected through a conducting wire, then alteration of charge, potential and energy takes place.
