Dear pallavi

 let parts are sepereted at a distance of d

so repulsion force F= k q(Q-q)/d2

     here Q and d are constant so for maximum force differentiate the force w.r.t q

 dF/dq = k/d2 [Q -2q]

 for maximum force dF/dq=0


                              Q/q =2

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.

F = kq(Q-q)/r^2
=> F = k(Qq-q^2)/r^2
Since Q, r, and k are all constants,
dF/dq = d (k(Qq-q^2)/r^2) / dq
=> dF/dq = k/r^2 * [Q – 2q]
Since the maximum force is a constant, dF/dq must be equal to 0.
Hence, k/r^2 * [Q – 2q] = 0
=> Q – 2q = 0
=> Q = 2q
=> q = Q/2 or Q/q = 2

										Let q and Q-q be the charges on the two objects. Then force between the two object is F =1/ 4 pi Eò . q(Q-q)/ r^2     where r is the distance between them....For F to be max ,  dF/dq = 0  Or 1/4pi E0 .r^2 .d(qQ-q^2)/ dq= 0 Q-2q =0 q = Q/2    answer....

										I dI`d not understand  the part where the maximum  force is a constant. And why did you equate dF/dq to zero?

										We equate dF/dq=0 because it`s one of the rules of differentiation where we equate it to 0 when we want any maximum or minimum value of something

q and (Q-q) be charges 
So the force (F) =Kq(Q-q)/r2
To maximize dF/dq=0
so (q-Q+q=0)
in other words, two charge force will increase as the multiple will increase, but when the multiple will be maximum at the mid point only.
