Unformatted text preview: h center on the corner of an equilateral triangle having a side of 50m. A charge of 4 x 10-4 coulombs is initially placed on the large sphere while it is isolated from other two spheres. The spheres are then interconnected by very thin neutral conducting wires. Assume that all of the charge ends up on the three spheres and none ends up on the wires. After the system reaches a state of electrostatic equilibrium, which of the following is closest to the the charge on the large sphere? A) 2.57 x 10-4 C B) 2.00 x 10-4 C C) zero D) 0.67 x 10-4 C E) 1.33 x 10-4 C...
