What natural barrier tries to prevent two protons from combining: 1) electromagnetic repulsion 2) the strong nuclear force 3) antigravity 4) the weak nuclear force 5) dark energy
Fundamental Forces of Nature:
A force in simple terms is a push or a pull. In nature there are four fundamental forces. There is gravitational force between two bodies that have mass. There are also electromagnetic force between charged bodies. The last two forces are found in the nucleus of an atom which are the strong and weak nuclear force.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The natural barrier to prevent two protons from combining is called the Coulomb barrier which originates from electromagnetic repulsion. Charged...
