#### Question

Consider two pairs of neutrons. In each pair, the separation between the neutrons is the same. Can the force between the neutrons have different magnitudes for the two pairs?

#### Solution

Neutrons are chargeless particles and they exert only short range nuclear forces on each other. If we have two pairs of neutrons and the separation between them is same in both the pairs. The force between the neutrons will be of same magnitude for the two pairs until there is some other influence on any of them.

Is there an error in this question or solution?

Solution Consider Two Pairs of Neutrons. in Each Pair, the Separation Between the Neutrons is the Same. Can the Force Between the Neutrons Have Different Magnitudes for the Two Pairs? Concept: Nuclear Energy - Introduction of Nuclear Energy.
