So in the world of protons, neutrons and electrons, these pieces of matter combine to create what we see around us. Solids, liquids and gases. What I'm trying to figure out is the spacial area to mass ratio before this general structure of protons, neutrons, and electrons collapses into smaller particles meaning a area of matter/energy that contains no protons neutrons and electrons. Can that happen? Would it be due to gravitational forces? And generally I'm wondering about a small spherical area and what the metrc radius of the spherical area would be with the mass in kilograms compressed inside it. Would it turn into a singularity? Is there a better way of asking this question? I welcome any thoughts and answers on this subject. One more note. Supose that the inward force compressing the matter was strong enough to prevent a nuclear explosion. It's not a completely necessary addendum though, so exclude it if needs be. Thank you.
