What force holds neutrons and protons together in an atomic nucleus?

The nuclear force or nuclear binding energy holds anatomic nucleus together. (Some science teachers insist it's calledthe strong nuclear force, which is not quite correct.) Nuclear binding energy is this nuclear force that overcomes therepulsive electrostatic force of the protons, which is tryin (MORE)

What are the 4 forces that hold an atom together?

electromagnetic - holds electrons to nucleus . weak - mediates neutron decay process . strong - holds nucleus together . gravity - has no effect Only 3 of the 4 forces act to hold atoms together.

What is the force that holds atoms together called?

The question is ambiguous. The primary force between distinct atoms that holds them together is the electromagnetic force (there's also gravity, but that's much much weaker). The communicating particle (aka "gauge particle") for the electromagnetic force is the photon. Several forces play a (MORE)

Which are the universal forces that hold the atom together?

Electromagnetic force pulls electrons toward protons. Protons and neutrons are bound in the nucleus by "the nuclear force". The nuclear force is further described by "strong nuclear force" and the "weak nuclear force" so that's 3 universal forces. Gravity is the other universal force but it is not c (MORE)

The force that holds atoms together?

They are chemical bonds varying in strength. The strong nuclear force holds atoms together. Electro-static forces hold molecules together. (The positive and negative forces of the electrons and protons create an attraction that keep the atom together.)

What force holds the nucleus of an atom together and begins with S and is six letters long?

It is the strong nuclear force.. Correction . The force holding an atomic nucleus together is properly called nuclear binding energy , and not the strong force. Nuclear binding energy might be called the residual strong force, and it (binding energy) is formed by mediation of the stong inte (MORE)

What force holds the electrons around the nucleus of an atom?

It is the electromagnetic force , one of the four fundamental forces in nature, that holds electrons in orbit around an atomic nucleus. The electrons have a negative charge, and the protons in the nucleus have a positive charge. The opposite charges attract each other. The electromagnetic force als (MORE)

What is the force that holds the atoms in a molecule together?

Electrostatic attraction for electron pairs hold atoms together. When atoms bond into a molecule, they share electrons, each contributing one electron to a pair. Since the nuclei of the atoms are positive and the electrons are negative, both nuclei are attracted to the shared pair, and stay near eac (MORE)

How does electric force hold the atom together?

atoms are held together bye positively charged particles (protons) and negatively sharged particles(electrons) and another elementary particle called the nuetron. The nucleus of an atom consists of protons, and neutrons and the shell outside of the nucleus consists of electrons.what holds the proton (MORE)

The force that holds atoms or ions together?

Ions - Electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged ions, known as the ionic bond. Atoms - Instantaneous dipole-induced dipole(id-id) interactions for Atoms in ground state.

What is the force that holds atom together in a molecule?

Molecules are held together by covalent bonds ( these are different from ionic bonds which are a consequence of different electro-static values created by an imbalance between protons and electrons in the respective atoms.) Covalent bonds are a consequence of electron sharing between atoms, and c (MORE)

Which interaction tends to hold the particles in an atomic nucleus together?

\nThat would be the strong nuclear force. It is called the strong force because it is the most powerful of the 4 fundamental forces; typical field strength is 100 times the strength of the electromagnetic force, 1013 times as great as that of the weak force, and about 1038 times that of gravitation (MORE)

What forces hold the atom together?

The nucleus is held together by a combination of both the strong and weak forces. The electrons are held in their orbitals about the nucleus by the electromagnetic force. That leaves only gravity , which does not participate in holding atoms together.

What force holds atoms or ions together?

The quarks that make up protons are held together by strong nuclear force mediated by gluons. The protons and nuetrons themselves are held together by a short range force known as residual strong force. The electrons are bound to the nucleus by an electrostatic force that keeps them within the elect (MORE)

What force is holding atoms together in compounds?

It not really a force, atoms are made up of protons, neutrons andelectrons. The outside bit of atoms is the electrons bit which isfuzzy and when the atoms touch each other the fuzzy bits sort ofjoin together. The weak nuclear force holds atoms together in a compound and thestrong nuclear force hold (MORE)

What kind of force can hold together atoms?

Atoms are held together by intramolecular forces and molecules by intermolecular forces. To distinguish between the two think of molecules as being different countries and therefore them being international. Or in computer terms where a closed network is a lan between different computers ( atoms (MORE)

Do protons help hold an atomic nucleus together?

Yes, the protons help hold an atomic nucleus together. Let's look at things and figure this one out.. Protons are positively charged, as you know, and like charges repel. That's basic electrostatics. The Coulomb forces of the protons push them away from each other. Further, when protons are packed (MORE)

Forces that hold an atom together?

The nucleus of an atom is held together by the strong nuclear force. This force is named as such because it is approximately 100 times greater than the Coulomb force which is the repulsive force that drives like charges apart (protons are positive, meaning that they should move apart).

What it the force that holds to atoms together?

Nuclear force hold atoms together New author- ...that's a poor answer. Actually there are four forces that holds an atom together. 1. gravitaional force(gravity... we all learned it, even though a nucleus has little mass it is very dense, if the nucleus[not the atom] was the size of a grape then i (MORE)

What atomic force holds the nucleus of an atom together and why is this force necessary?

The nucleus is held together by what is officially known as the strong nuclear force. Since the nucleus of all elements except hydrogen contains more than one proton, and all protons repell all other protons (since they have positive electric charges, and like charges repell, as stated in Coulomb's (MORE)

Why is a nuclear strong force needed to hold the nucleus of an atom together?

Without the strong nuclear force being present, the electrostatic repulsive force between the positively charged protons would lead to the nucleus disintegrating, as gravity alone between the particles is not strong enough to hold it together. The nucelar strong force is far stronger than the electr (MORE)

What kind force holds atoms together in a chemical bond?

"Ionic" Ionic Bonds are only one type of chemical bonding that occurs and is not a force. Electromagnetic force is responsible for all types of chemical bonds and occurs when a positive charge comes into contact with a negative charge. If you wanted to know what forces hold atoms to each othe (MORE)

What forces hold atoms together in an element?

the nucleus of an atom has protons and neutrons, and electrons spin in orbitals around the nucleus. since opposites attract, electrons are pulled towards the protons in the nucleus, but their spin-velocity is like planets in a solar system: they keep approximately the same distance from the sun, eve (MORE)

What force holds the atomic nuclei together?

The residual strong nuclear force. (The strong, or "color", force holds the quarks together in an individual nucleon. The residual color force serves to hold the nucleons together in a nucleus. It's somewhat analogous to the dipole-dipole interaction, except it involves the color force rather than (MORE)

What is the force that holds the atoms together?

Actually, there are two forces: the strong nuclear force, which maintains the nucleus, and the electroweak force, which affects the electron shells. The attempt to demonstrate that these are actually aspects of the same force is known as Grand Unified Theory (GUT). If gravity can be shown to be part (MORE)

What forces holds a atom together?

There are two types of Electric charge that hold an atom together: Positive and Negative. If the two charges are opposites (e.g. Positive and Negative), then they will attract. Hence, like charges will repel and go separate ways.

How does the strong nuclear force hold the nucleus of an atom together?

The strong nuclear force, also called binding energy, holds quarks together to form protons and neutrons. Residual binding energy, also called the nuclear force, holds protons and neutrons together to form the nucleus of an atom. This holds true up to about atomic number 83 (bismuth), at which po (MORE)

What is the force needed to hold together a nucleus?

Nuclear force- it is a force that exists between two or more nucleons, it is responsible for the bonding of the neutrons and protons. The reason itself is much more complicated because it involves quarks which are smaller than protons or neutrons.

What types of bonds hold the atoms together?

Atoms can bond either through covalent bonding, in which electrons are shared, or ionic bonding, in which electrons are transferred from one atom to another, forming oppositely charged ions which form an electrostatic attraction for one another.

What are the forces that hold two atoms together?

We've seen that an atom consists of a whole bunch of different kinds of particles. The next logical question (and we do want to be logical, don't we?) is: "What holds it all together?" What makes all this stuff an atom, rather than just a bunch of stuff flying past each other? Well, there are basic (MORE)
