    What do you mean with "the equation"? The Lagrangian?
    Strong interaction
    Electroweak interaction

    Both rely on quantum field theory, you cannot reduce them to something similar to Newton's law for gravity.

    How to combine them to a more fundamental interaction is an open question, approaches are usually called Grand_Unified_Theories.
