What is the Strongest FORCE in the UNIVERSE?

jdog (@jayden2016) 8 years, 8 months ago

When I say force i mean scientifically, like gravity, electromagnetism, nuclear ec.

I’d say the creative force..
but as far as scientifically goes, I would say gravity- although seemingly the most weak, we seem bounded by it the most as well. Thats just a human perspective though..on a universal scale, it’s really hard to say.

There could be more forces than we know about as well.

@hollowinfinity, yes, The Strong Force is technically the strongest force(holds atoms together) however this force only works at an incredibly short distance. Gravity is a tough one though. :) Its like if gravity is an ant, and a really fat person is the Strong Force. The ant can lift its own body weight, meaning if the ant somehow got bigger, it could potentially be stronger than any other force. However the fat person(Strong Force), initially could lift more than the ant. Its all proportional to how big this figurative ant is compared to the fat man.
In a more scientific explanation, basically the more mass an object has, the more powerful gravity is. So I guess in a way gravity is the weakest and most potentially powerful force in the universe.

P.S. Black Holes infinite amount of power comes solely from gravity at its most extreme point.

It has to be the power of life itself… some may call it the power of love, some may call it the power of the unmanifested. Ultimately if we appreciate the miraculous power of the life energy that allows us to be alive your life is explosively revolutionised.

After the recent death of my uncle, seeing his dead body infront of me I appreciated like never before the power of this life energy that made him who he was compared to the corpse in front of me. It was the hardest time of my life, yet the most miraculously catalysing that literally transformed my life :-)

@jayden2016, Gravity is definitely the strongest force we know of. It holds everything together; solar systems, galaxies.

Gamma ray bursts are pretty fucking powerful too and awesome.

Don’t believe @bethechange2013 ‘s self help crap. From what we know, scientifically speaking of course, the power of life forces is marginal and insignificant on a universal scale.

@bethechange2013, @chekovchameleon, I appreciate both of your inputs :) and yes @chekovchameleon Gamma ray bursts are pretty fucking awesome.

How about dark energy? We’re not quite sure what it is right now, but we do know it’s the dominant component of the universe ( about 73% from current estimates). But it’s got like a repulsive force (kinda like a negative gravity, maybe?) that is causing the universe to expand, hence why all the galaxies are moving away from eachother.

Any thoughts on dark energy?

gravity is actually the weakest of the 4 forces… yes, its reach is unlimited, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is the weakest.

Think of it this way. Place a piece of paper on the ground, and it takes an entire planet worth of gravity to hold it there. Then take a balloon and rub it on your head to create static electricity, and put the balloon over the piece of paper, and the paper will life off the ground. And entire planet worth of gravity, overcome by that tiny amount of electro-magnetic force.

Gravity is something like 10^38 times weaker than the strong force

@chekovchameleon, no, it isn’t. Gravity is the weakest force. Its strength is just proportional to the mass of the object in question.

Metaphysically, I would say Love. Though just because it hasn’t been scientifically proven, doesn’t mean it’s not a fact. Think about what we are, what the universe is. It is the inevitable physical manifestation of what? god, the spirit, the eternal being. who can say? but look at the dance our celestial bodies do in our solar system, all orbiting in perfect sync all pulled in by the gravity of the sun, all emitting their own gravitational pull. It’s attraction, the law of love. Farther out, there have been seven or eight dwarf galaxies discovered orbiting our own milky way. All which will eventually be consumed by one another creating one super galaxy. Galactic Union! If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

Why are people saying gravity? Gravity is not that strong. Magnets can defy it.

holy shit HE is not the place to discuss physics, apparently.

To put the strength of the electromagnetic force in perspective:
If you had a mol of electrons (This would weigh .548mg) in a jar and a mol of electrons in a jar and held them 1 meter apart from each other, this would have a force of 83405106176000000000 Newtons or
8.3×10^19 N

The force the sun exerts on the earth?
3.67×10^22 N

So in other words, if you had half a gram of electrons in two separate jars, the force between them would be greater than the sun on the earth. Needless to say you wouldn’t have arms anymore.

dark matter/energy.

gravity is weak.. but its pull or range is for all we know limitless.

@thebuddha, yes dark matter is an interesting idea. Though not proven to exist, there is strong evidence showing that there is some type of force in the universe that does indeed negate the effects of gravity.

jdog (10) (@jayden2016) 8 years, 8 months ago ago

@kidd, Gravity is indeed not the strongest force initially, however I think these people are trying to say it has the most potential energy. Yes, on our earth a magnet, or our muscles can overcome gravity, but on say Jupiter, we would be crushed to the ground, unable to move.

@jayden2016, Yes i find the dark energy theory and gravity to be very interesting because they actually bend the fabric of space/time itself. Gravity is a much weaker force in the grand scheme of things, but everything has gravity.

But I believe The Strong Nuclear Force is by far the strongest. Which hasn’t been mentioned yet. It actually overpowers electromagnetic repulsion in a very close range.

@ijesuschrist, It can “glue” the nuclei together so fusion can happen, along with most of the other basic particles. It is over 100 times stronger than the electromagnetic force, which comes in at 2nd place of the strongest forces

@thebuddha, I actually mentioned the strong force(at the top of the page) to be technically the strongest force, however I said I though that gravity had the most potential energy. :)

@ijesuschrist, The electromagnetic force is much stronger than gravity, but (and this is according to your calculations) the force which the sun exerts on the earth is stronger than the force between the electrons in the jars, since 8.3×10^19 < 3.67×10^22. Still, the comparison is useful: while the sun in millions of times more massive than the electrons, the force it exerts on the earth is only 440 times bigger than the force exerted by the electrons.

@vasco, I think its pretty obvious that if you had a GRAM of electrons in two jars, separately, and held them at arms length, the force would be greater than the entire sun exerting its force on the earth.

Now take 2 grams of any neutral material (i.e. a marble) and hold them at arms length. Man that gravity is strong eh?
