Does electrons contribute to nuclear force.?
As per name 'nuclear force', it shouldn't contribute. Even if it does it should be to a very little extent. right?

If you mean 'strong force,' then no.

If you mean "at all" then yes in a sense because electrons do feel the electromagnetic force shared by protons, and thus affect the nucleus in a sense.
