How does the exchange of gluons between quarks "bind" them together?
Your question can be understood at several levels. The way I understand it, it may be re-phrasedHow does the exchange of gluons between quarks "bind" them together?
in a non-relativistic picture of quark-quark interaction via gluon exchange.why does the potential grow linearly ?
there are many other possible interpretations.what is the physical mechanism for confinement of light quarks in Nature ?
Though I can't say I fully understand it myself, Richard Feynman compares gluons and chromodynamics with photons and electrodynamics, talking about a coupling constant referred to as j for photons and g for gluons, which seems relative to amplitude, in the book 'QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter', g being much larger and more complex to calculate than j.How does the exchange of gluons between quarks "bind" them together?
