Confused on four fundamental forces where does color come in?

  1. Jul 27, 2004 #1
    hey, im a bit confused about the forces. if theres four of them, where does color fit in? the hyper-physics website says that the strong force is a 'residual color fource'... but see the thing is, it also says the force-carrying boson is the pion, while the gluon carries the color force. but i've seen a lot of people talking about gluons carrying the strong force and... it gets quite mussied up in my head after that. :tongue2:
