Repulsive force of protons against protons.

  • #1
While researching for a problem that I wanted to solve i came upon the fact that there is no way to truly calculate the repulsive force of protons in the nucleus with other protons in the nucleus and how at what point it starts to be truly repulsive and not the "strong nuclear force" that binds nucli together. So what is the repulsive force of two same charged same sized objects in newtons not coulumbs? This can be used to calculate the same thing but inside the nucleus to see why protons truly are bound together.









(This is not a homework question don't move or delete it again thank you)

I'm THINK (don't quote me on this) the force =

charge1 * charge2 * 9x109 / distance2

measuring charge in coulombs, and distance in meters. 9x109 is what I remember the approximation of the constant is, but it might be different.
