nincompoop 3 years ago what is the strongest force?

1. SheldonEinstein

I suppose it as "gravitational force"

2. SheldonEinstein

Gravitational force of "the largest body" ... like gravity of sun > gravity of earth > gravity of moon.

3. SheldonEinstein

What do you think, it should be @nincompoop ? At least in my opinion it is "force of gravity"

4. Algebraic!

the color force, aka the strong force.

5. SheldonEinstein

What is color force? @Algebraic!

6. Algebraic!

one of the four fundamental forces in the universe @SheldonEinstein

7. Algebraic!

nope.

8. SheldonEinstein

I would say that all are "dependent" , aren't they ? (there may be exceptions -- some)

9. Algebraic!

the gluon is the boson of the color force.

10. SheldonEinstein

I will say that "Non-contact forces" include the stronger ones then the "Contact forces".

11. Algebraic!

now you've got it.

12. SheldonEinstein

Strongest force -- > it is hard to name the "strongest" force among all the forces, if you can than there are a lot forces which are not yet discovered.

13. SheldonEinstein

We can compare two or more than two forces, but can't state the strongest force.

14. SheldonEinstein

I have heard of 4 fundamental forces yet : http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/forces/funfor.html here you can study them in brief.

16. vannayen

biggest mass

17. karan.singh

the force which hold electron and proton in an atom is a strongest force....electrostaic force as i guess

18. Pallavi06

its atomic force........its short range force......it is the force which overcomes the electrostatic repulsion between protons in am atom....magnitude wise it is greatest force...

19. Jemurray3

As far as we know, there are four forces that operate in our universe. We have the Strong Nuclear force, the Weak nuclear force, the Electric force, and the Gravitational force. You can't compare their magnitudes because they are extremely complicated in general and are dependent on range.

20. Jemurray3

At extremely close range, the strong nuclear force is able to overcome the electric force. However, at length scales greater than the size of the proton, the electrostatic force becomes dominant.

21. Shane_B

It's pretty straightforward...in order of highest to lowest force: 1) Strong nuclear 2) Electromagnetic 3) Weak nuclear 4) Gravity

22. Jemurray3

^^ again, depending on range...

23. Shane_B

24. Shane_B

but I agree with your sentiment

25. Jemurray3

It's inherent in the answer. That's like saying who's better, pele or roger federer. One's better at soccer(football) and the other's better at tennis so unless you specify at which sport you're talking about it's not a meaningful question...

26. Shane_B

That's a fair statement...but this is a common Physics question in which the intent is to list them in the order above. Yes, it depends on range and context.

27. Algebraic!

Range is an anti-issue. The color force varies linearly *with* distance. The farther apart two quarks are, the stronger the force. In fact, at a fairly short separation, matter would actually be created "out of thin air" as the energy required to increase the separation quickly becomes so great that the creation of a new quark pair is energetically favored.

28. Jemurray3

The strong force to which we were referring is the force between nucleons rather than the internal forces within nucleons, as this is the aspect of the strong force with which most entry level students are familiar.

29. nincompoop

sorry guys, the strongest force is LOVE :)
