I got to wondering about this the other day so I tried looking it up but I could not find anything. All j could find was that it had a maximum force of 10,00N. I tried to calculate the electrostatic force of a helium atom because if the strong force has to hold the atoms nuclei together jt has to be at least in equilibrium with the electrostatic force, but tbat came up to be 230.4N. So now I am left with 230.4<F(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{S}<10,000. How do I calculate the actual strong force or did I miss something or what? Thanks for the help!
