Of the charge Q initially on a tiny sphere a portion q is transferred to a second nearby sphere. Both spheres can be treated as particles. For what value of q/Q will the electrostatic force between the two spheres be maximized?
We want to maximize the force on F(q) = k [(Q-q)q/r^2]
Solve for q in terms of Q

I dont even know where to start. This is my very very first HW question in physics 2 and its blowing my mind.
