Edexcel Physics Syllabus point

  1. Oct 27, 2011 #1
    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?

    this is the only point on the syllabus I don't quite get
    could someone please run me through the main principles
