How The forces work

    How Do Particles Mediate forces (Strong Nuclear, Weak Nuclear). Like, what actually goes on to mediate such interactions?

    Translation: "Please write down all of particle physics".

    Sorry, but this is a big order. I understand your wanting to know, but as they say "it's beyond the scope of this course, the next one, and the one after that". It's not possible to condense several years of school into a few words on a computer screen."

    Well no. I understand most of particle physics, buty question is what role does the particle play? Does it create the field of the force?

    Son, you're still in high school. You don't understand "most of particle physics". I've been working in this field for two decades, and even I don't understand "most of particle physics". It's a big topic. Furthermore, if you understood "most of particle physics", you would have the answer to your question.

    This thread cannot go anywhere good.
