How would it be possible to produce the strong nuclear force?
Question Date: 2007-09-02
Answer 1:

The strong nuclear force is a fundamental force of nature, like gravity. It is a very short range force that acts between elementary particles on a scale much smaller than that of an atom. As a result, the strong nuclear force isn't something you can reproduce like you would a magnetic field. You can, however, study this force by observing its effects on quarks and gluons under various conditions.
