The force that binds protons and neutrons together in nuclei.
See subduction zone.
strong force: One of the four forces of nature; the strong force binds protons and neutrons together in atomic nuclei.
subduction zone: A region of a planetary crust where a tectonic plate slides downward.
subsolar point: The point on a planet that is directly below the sun.
(a) Strongest of the four fundamental forces, responsible for keeping quarks locked inside protons and neutrons and for keeping protons and neutrons crammed inside of atomic nuclei.
Strong force- the strongest of the four fundamental forces, with the shortest range of all; it holds the quarks together within protons and neutrons, and holds the protons and neutrons together to form atoms ...
strong force See "nuclear force."
subgiant branch The section of an evolutionary track of a star that corresponds to changes that occur just after hydrogen is depleted in its core, and core hydrogen burning ceases.
strong force - (n.)
The nuclear force, the strongest of the four fundamental forces of nature.
sublimation - (n.) ...
The strong force and weak force are both very strong forces, but have extremely limited range. The strong force operates inside the atomic nucleus and essentially holds the protons and neutrons together by the exchange of particles called gluons.

In particle physics, the strong interaction, or strong force, or color force, holds quarks and gluons together to form protons, neutrons and other particles....

frames, including local gravitational physics, is independent of the velocity and location of the frame. [D89]
(b) In a freely falling and non-rotating laboratory the laws of physics, including their numerical content, are the same everywhere including gravity-free space. [H76]

Pamela: The Strong Force, we haven't actually been able to experimentally say can probably been combined in with the Electro-Weak. But we think it can. This is where we're still kinda working on things. We know there was an Electro-Weak Force, a time when Electromagnetism and Weak were combined.
GRAND UNIFICATION ENERGY: The energy above which, it is believed, the electromagnetic force, weak force, and strong force become indistinguishable from each other.
GRAND UNIFIED THEORY (GUT): A theory that unifies the electromagnetic, strong, and weak energy forces.
gluons (NASA Thesaurus) The carriers of the strong force which holds atomic nuclei together (holding together groups of quarks making up stable particles, which in turn are bound together in the atomic nuclei).
Protons and neutron are held together by the "strong force". The strong force only acts over very small distances but is able to overcome the electrostatic repulsion between protons.
As the temperature fell below 1028 K and the strong force appeared for the first time as a separate entity"a little like a gas liquefying or water freezing as the temperature drops"theory implies that the universe briefly entered a very odd, and unstable, ...
Actually two kinds of force are active in the nucleus, known simply as the "strong force" and the "weak force," or more commonly the "strong interaction" and the "weak interaction" (because their main effect is in converting and creating particles).
The Strong Nuclear Force (also called the "nuclear force" or the "strong force") holds the atomic nucleus together. To do this, it must overcome the tremendous repulsion that arises when the positively charged protons are packed together into the small space of the nucleus.
During the 1970s there was developed a similar quantum field theory for the strong force, called quantum chromodynamics (QCD). In QCD, quarks interact through the exchange of particles called gluons.
The inner core eventually reaches typically 30 km diameter, and a density comparable to that of an atomic nucleus, and further collapse is abruptly stopped by strong force interactions and by degeneracy pressure of neutrons.
Gravity is the only one of the four fundamental forces of nature that stubbornly refuses to be quantised (the other three: Electromagnetism, the Strong Force, and the Weak Force, can be quantised).
We knew there were strong forces that would resist, ..just as surface tension. But nuclei differed from ordinary drops. At this point we both sat down on a tree trunk and started to calculate on scraps of paper. ...the Uranium nucleus might indeed be an unstable drop, ready to divide itself...
A strong force of Standardists easily recaptured the installation, but excessive force was used, destroying the Genetron and all the activists in spectacular fashion.
This is due to the fact that the strong force that affects quarks increases with distance: not unlike a elastic string, as 2 quarks are moved farther apart, the force between them increases.
There are four fundamental forces that cause such actions to happen: gravity, the electromagnetic force, the weak force, and the strong force.
It begins when two protons (bare hydrogen atoms) ram together strongly enough to overcome the mutual repulsion caused by their positive electric charges and get close enough to stick together under the "strong force" (which operates only over a very short range).
Leptons are subatomic particles that are susceptible to the weak nuclear force but not the strong force (the force that binds an atomic nucleus together). There are six leptons: the electron, muon, tau, electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino.
Let's say we get the thing compressed by some strong force. What happens to a GMC when you do compress them?
However, I don't think this alleviates the worry about decrewing much. It seems like there are pretty strong forces in this country, including our President and some higher up folks at NASA, that want us out of the manned space flight business.
Unlike the other forces, the strength of the strong force between quarks becomes stronger with distance, acting like an unbreakable elastic thread. However, it only operates over a very small distance (less than the size of the nucleus), outside of which it fades away abruptly.
