What are the four fundamental forces?

The four fundamental forces are gravity, electromagnetic force, strong nuclear force, and weak nuclear force.

Which force is responsible for holding the nucleus of the atom together?

The strong nuclear force is responsible for binding protons and neutrons together in the nucleus of an atom.

What is the primary force that holds objects on the surface of the earth?

The primary force that holds objects on the surface of the earth is gravity.

What is the force called that keeps electrons in orbit around the nucleus of an atom?

The electromagnetic force is responsible for the attraction between the positively charged nucleus and negatively charged electrons.

Which of the fundamental forces is the weakest?

Gravity is the weakest of the four fundamental forces.

What is the range of the strong nuclear force?

The strong nuclear force is only effective over very short distances, up to about the size of a nucleus.

How does the weak nuclear force play a role in radioactive decay?

The weak nuclear force is responsible for beta decay, a type of radioactive decay where a neutron in the nucleus decays into a proton, electron, and antineutrino.

What fundamental force is responsible for the interaction between electrically charged particles?

The electromagnetic force is responsible for the interaction between electrically charged particles.

What is the range of the electromagnetic force?

The electromagnetic force can act over an infinite range, but its strength decreases with distance.

What is the relative strength of the strong nuclear force compared to the electromagnetic force?

The strong nuclear force is about 10^38 times stronger than the electromagnetic force.

What is the relative strength of the weak nuclear force compared to gravity?

The weak nuclear force is about 10^25 times stronger than gravity, but its range is much shorter.

What happens when two positive charges are brought close together?

When two positive charges are brought close together, they repel each other due to the electromagnetic force.

What is the range of gravity?

Gravity is an infinitely ranged force, but its strength decreases with distance.

How are the fundamental forces related to each other?

Currently, the fundamental forces are understood to be different manifestations of a single fundamental interaction.

What is the primary force responsible for the behavior of atoms and molecules?

The electromagnetic force is primarily responsible for the behavior of atoms and molecules.

What are the four fundamental forces?
