    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    explain why high energies are required to break particles into their constituents and to see fine structure

    this is a point on the syllabus and I can't find an answer in the book


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    is it that the "strong force" holds constituent particles together
    thus very high forces are needed to seperate them?
