But there is a strong, overall trend in the "forward" direction as a result of the electric field caused by the external coulomb force.
Overcoming the repulsive Coulomb force requires a couple of tricks, including getting as many neutrons as possible into the nucleus.
Components of the Coulomb force per unit volume are determined as the product of space charge density and the field strength:
The crevice, or energy minimum, is created by the Coulomb force, which causes positively charged protons to repel one another, together with quantum mechanical effects, elongating the nucleus into a superdeformed shape and giving the nucleus a measure of stability.
where the first, second, and third ratios are the superforces for Newton's gravitational force and General relativity, and the free-space forces and superforces associated with the Coulomb force.
The results of this stage are the components of Coulomb force in each the node of computational grid.
The strong force can be compared to the intrinsic Coulomb force discussed in this context, also in respect to a possible quark model being somewhat similar to that of the electron as described in Section 2.
In the most basic interaction involving say a doublet of two oppositely charged point masses, the Coulomb force is the most dominant.
While the Coulomb force is a dominant feature of this activity, we suggest that the primary basis of chemical reactivity is the magnetic interaction.
The static Coulomb and gravitational forces between two like, charged elementary particles are used in this section to derive the fine structure constant, the ultimate Coulomb force, the ultimate gravitational force, the gravitational constant, and the ultimate PV-curvature force.
