## In moving from A to B along an electric field line, the work done by the electric field on an electron is 6.4 ×10-19 J. If φ1 and φ2 are equipotential surfaces, then the potential difference VC VA is

## Two spherical conductors of radii R1 and R2 are separated by a distance much larger than the radius of either sphere. The spheres are connected by a conducting wire as shown in figure. If the charges on the spheres in equilibrium are q1 and q2, respectively, what is the ratio of the field strength at the surfaces of the spheres?
