Number of ways of dividing things into groups...

Suppose I have n number of **identical** objects and I want to distribute them into k number of boxes there are

ways to do so, with no constrains upon the number of balls in the boxes.

Now if I have n **non identical** objects and k boxes what should be the number of ways to distribute the objects?

And what are the number of ways of putting n objects of which are of one type, are of second type and so on, into k number of boxes.
