4- The Strong Nuclear force:
A force which can hold a nucleus together against the enormous forces of repulsion of the protons is strong indeed. However, it is not an inverse square force like theelectromagnetic force and it has a veryshort range.It is responsible for the binding of the nuclei, is the dominant force in the react
ion &decays of most of the fundamental particles.The relative strength b/w two neighboring protons is 1. the strong force is 10
timesgreater than gravitational force.
Unification for forces:
century James Clerk Maxwell united the separate electric & magnetic fields intoa single electromagnetism force.In 1967 a theory was proposed by “Dr. Abdus Salam”, “Stephen Weinberg”.According to this theory the weak & electromagnetism forces could be regarded a partof a single force called electroweak force.
