Potential energy

Two conducing concentric hollow spheres of radii a and 2a respectively are shown in the diagram.  The inner shell has net charge Q on its surface.  The outer shell is neutral.  If the outer shell is connected to the earth the heat generated through the connecting wire is


Outside energy =14π0Q22×2a  will become zero as the shell is earthed.  This energy appears as heat
