A charge Q is to be divided on two objects. What should be the values of the charges on the object so that the force between the objects can be maximum?

  • physics -

    one is x
    other is q-x

    F = kx(q-x)/d^2 where k and d are constants

    dF/dx = (k/d^2) [ x(-1) +(q-x)1]
    max when dF/dx = 0
    0 = -x + q - x
    q = 2 x
    x = q/2
    evenly divided
