Greetings all. I am The_Jackal...and I am happy to be here I never took a physics course, but have some peripheral knowledge of it and I have a couple of observations and that developed into questions, I was wondering if anyone here can help me with so I and better understand. I learned that there are 4 forces of nature 1) gravity 2) electromagnetism 3) the strong-nuclear-interaction 4) the weak-nuclear-interaction Now, let me explain my reasoning that lead to the question I have. Electromagnetism is basically defined as the electromagnetic-spectrum, right? Well, I've heard that all the levels that comprise the electromagnetic-spectrum (radio wave, microwave, infrared, the visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays) are all described as types of radiation, right? And if I understand correctly, radiation is the "weak-nuclear-force" of the 4 forces of nature, right? So if the electromagnetic-spectrum is the radiation of the weak-nuclear-interaction, then what is the difference between the electromagnetic-force and the weak-nuclear-force? And does this explain the concept of the "electroweak-interaction"? I know I don't have a complete picture here. I hope someone can correct me.
