Porque = because. Ex: Eu fiz aquilo porque eu quis.

Porquê = reason. Ex: Eu não etendo o porquê de você agir assim.

Por que = why used in the beginning of the sentence. Ex: Por que vocês não querem comer?

Por quê = why used at the end of the sentence. Ex: Vocês não querem comer. Por quê?

we don't know well, so don't worry. Because, if you write porque or por que, we understand.
