# Approximate the strong force between two protons.

## Homework Statement

2 protons in a Helium nucleus are separated by about 2x10^-15 m. Calculate the approximate magnitude of the strong force holding the 2 protons together.

## Homework Equations

Electromagnetic force equation?

## The Attempt at a Solution

Okay now im thinking that the strong force is 100 times stronger thn the electromagnetic force.. SO do I calculate the electromagnetic force between two protons and multiply by 100?
