The Fundamental Forces of Nature

Post by Christopher K. » May 6th, 2019, 3:10 pm

The fundamental forces of nature are...
*GRAVITY. This one is the best known by name, but also the weakest. Ironically, it is also a much better long-range force.
*STRONG NUCLEAR FORCE and WEAK NUCLEAR FORCE. The least well-known ones, but very important for the making of protons and neutrons, and for the making of complex atoms via nuclear fusion.
*ELECTROMAGNETISM. Electromagnetism best-known by all its wonderful subdivisions. Gamma Rays / X-Rays / Ultraviolet / Visible Light / Infrared / Microwaves / Radio.
