# P Two Protons Are Kept at a Separation of 10 Nm. Let Fn and Fe Be the Nuclear Force and the Electromagnetic Force Between Them. - Physics

ConceptNuclear Force

#### Question

Two protons are kept at a separation of 10 nm. Let Fn and Fe be the nuclear force and the electromagnetic force between them.

• Fe = Fn

• Fe >> Fn

• Fe << Fn

• Fe and Fn differ only slightly.

#### Solution

Fe >> Fn

Two protons exert strong attractive nuclear force and repulsive electrostatic force on each other. Nuclear forces are short range forces existing in the range of a few fms. Therefore, at a separation of 10 nm, the electromagnetic force is greater than the nuclear force, i.e. Fe >> Fn

Is there an error in this question or solution?
