Static-electricity : Flow of charge

i've read the theory of static electricity but couldn't solve this following problem :

if two objects having 5 coulomb & 20 coulomb charge are situated 15 apart from each other and connected with a conductor wire , what will be the change of the force between them compare to the force between them without the wire ?

what will be the direction of flow of charge (if there any flow) & how to calculate which object will take charge or which will give(also what is the amount of transferred charge) ?

any descriptive answer will be really helpful (i'm little weak in static-electricity) , thank you .

(sorry for my poor english)

Pal I'm sure I can't either but as an erstwhile inventor in the field I'm interested to be sure

I'd suppose flow through the wire would equalize the charge. Thus for instance if they were opposite in polarity a discharge would reduce both to zero

Electrons from the one more negative would rush to the other

The amount of course Pal would depend on the original state of the two

You're entirely welcome but I hope someone familiar with the math of it all would respond

I'm weak almost everywhere

No need whatever to apologize. Good God, myself I have a BS in journ (pun intended) and am an erstwhile writer but yet a2k--rightly--frequently tears me apart mercilessly

Set, Ossobuco, why don't you get in on this, what an opportunity
