Question 15
Two pairs of hollow, spherical conducting shells are connected with wires and switches. The
system AB (where A and B are far apart) is extremely far from system CD. In both systems the
large shells have four times the radius of the small shells. Before the switches are closed each
pair has a charge of +20 nC on the small shell (A,C) and +60 nC on the large shell (B,D)
A
(+20 nC)
B
(+60 nC)
C
(+20 nC)

spherical shells. Rank the electric charge on the shells A-D after the switches are closed.
