1. Is the color force the same as the strong nuclear force? I've heard that they're identical but I've also heard that the strong force is a "residual effect" of the color force. Not sure what to make of that 2. This is the more important question: if Gravity is "monopolar" and EMism is "bipolar," is it correct to call the color force "tripolar?" On account of the three "charges" of the color force, "red," "blue," and "green?"
