Strong and Weak Force Laws

  1. Aug 4, 2013 #1
    Hello! I have a question that has been bothering me for some time, and I thought this would be a good place to ask. This is my first posting on PF as well, so I hope this is well placed.

    There are force laws for the coulomb attraction and gravity. Are there similar force laws that can be written down for the strong and weak nuclear forces? If so, what are they?


    Thanks!

    Yes, but their form is not simple, nor enlightening, nor useful, so people don't usually bother.
