The electric force between two electrons is the same as the electric force between two protons when they are placed as the same distance….22.1. Introduction.

particle charge (C)
electron – 1.6 x 10-19
proton 1.6 x 10-19
neutron 0

## How do you find the electrostatic force between two protons?

The magnitude of the electrostatic force between two charges q1, q2, which are separated by a distance r is given as F=Kq1q2r2 ….. (i), where K is a proportionality constant whose value is 9×109Nm2C−2 in free space.

## What is the distance between two protons?

The point of zero net force is at about 7.6 fermi. That is just about exactly 5 times s0. The separation distance of the nucleon centers in a deuteron is about 3.2 fermi.

## What is the range of electrostatic force?

The electric force is operative between charges down to distances of at least 10-16 metre, or approximately one-tenth of the diameter of atomic nuclei.

## Is electrostatic force strong or weak?

Even though electrostatically induced forces seem to be rather weak, some electrostatic forces such as the one between an electron and a proton, that together make up a hydrogen atom, is about 36 orders of magnitude stronger than the gravitational force acting between them.

## How many basic forces are there?

four basic forces

## What are the 5 forces in physics?

They are in no particular order gravity, electromagnetism, the weak nuclear force and the strong nuclear force.

## Which fundamental force has the shortest range?

the strong nuclear force

## What is the range of strong force?

At the range of 10−15 m (1 femtometer), the strong force is approximately 137 times as strong as electromagnetism, a million times as strong as the weak interaction, and 1038 times as strong as gravitation.

## What is the range of the four fundamental forces?

Four Forces

Force particle range (meters)
Electromagnetic photon infinite
Gravitational graviton infinite
Weak nuclear weakon 10-17
Strong nuclear gluon 10-15

## Which force has an infinite range?

The electromagnetic force

## Which is the weakest force within an atomic nucleus?

Inside the tiny nucleus of an atom, the effect of gravity is small compared to the effects of the other three forces. Therefore, gravity is the weakest of the four forces!!!

W and Z bosons

## What particles feel the weak force?

Leptons are a group of subatomic particles that do not experience the strong force. They do, however, feel the weak force and the gravitational force, and electrically charged leptons interact via the electromagnetic force.

## Can you speed up radioactive decay?

The rate of this kind of decay depends on the chance of an electron straying into the nucleus and getting absorbed. So increasing the density of electrons surrounding the atomic nucleus can speed up the decay.
