I have read almost all answers on PSE and ESE but none of them are to the point or maybe I am not understanding.
I have described the setup in the title , I just want to know what will happen , will there be a momentary current / nothing happens.
Correct me if I am wrong but batteries have surplus of electrons on one terminal and deficit on other so they are at non zero potential with respect to infinity , so shouldn't there be a current , if not then atleast a force on free electrons of wire because wire is connected to + and - terminals on either end
I have read people answers where they say battery potential is not absolute to disgrace the above argument , therefore I've specifically told identical batteries so indeed there will be a potential difference across the wire.
from my other questions I have been able to gather that a piece of wire connected to a single terminal does get charged because that terminal of battery want to make it equipotential with its terminal , this is by considering the wire as capacitor plate.
so in my current question the opposite terminals will try to charge it differently so current flows?
I'm really confused please clear this once and for all with in depth explanation of all arguments and counter-arguments
