Basic explanation of what forces are, focussing on the subatomic world and including electromagnetic, weak and strong force.
A force which can hold a nucleus together is strong indeed.
Particles that interact by the strong interaction are called hadrons. This general classification includes mesons and baryons but specifically excludes leptons, which do not interact by the strong ...
A short explanation of force carriers which are particles responsible for the forces we experience.
The strong force holds atoms together but it's very complicated and not well understood. This article looks at the problems and current research trying to find the solutions.
A very basic introduction to forces.
A demonstration of multiple forces that acts on an object.
A summary page linking to many concepts relevant to forces.
Relative scale models of an atom, descriptions of size and density of the nucleus and the strong force, with good links to other sites
In order to accomplish nuclear fusion, the particles involved must first overcome the electric repulsion to get close enough for the attractive nuclear strong force to take over to fuse the particles.
