 Question: Sir what makes the nuclear force stronger force than gravitational force? By: mani     Date: 2012-08-26 Answer: Very fundamental question and I am afraid I do not have the answer. This is how the nature is. The nuclear force, in its range, is stronger than all other three. The strength will be determined by the basic interactions between quarks. By: Prof. H.C. Verma     Date: 2012-08-31

 Question: Sir Is there something called as Nuclear field like Electric and Magnetic fields ? If so could you please explain to me about it. By: Raghu Raman     Date: 2012-10-28 Answer: Yes, there is a field. However the length scales are small and so it has to be in quantum framework. Thus usual notion like force and motion of a particle will not be applicable. We do talk of a nuclear potential, which is essentially a field description. By: Prof. H.C. Verma     Date: 2012-12-28

 Question: Sir for the qn.what makes the nuclear force stronger force than gravitational force, can we say that nuclear force between 2 particles is larger than gravitational fore because coupling constant for nuclear force is larger than that for gravitational force? Of course, why coupling is larger is open By: Arun.V     Date: 2012-11-06 Answer: Indeed the coupling consts are defined like that. These are dimensionless quantities created from variety of quantities related to that interaction. You are very right that why the coupling constants are so different, is still under theoretical investigation. By: Prof. H.C. Verma     Date: 2012-12-01

 Question: Sir, if the nucleons of a nucleus are separated from each other, the total mass is increased. where does this mass come from? Can we think it as the conversion of binding energy into mass? By: sunil kumar     Date: 2012-11-24 Answer: Yes, you can. Indeed the changes in energy and mass are related by E = mc2 equation. By: Prof. H.C. Verma     Date: 2012-12-01

 Question: Sir can you through light on virtual particle, quasi-particles and isospin. By: Showkat Mir     Date: 2013-04-01 The co-ordinator will post his answer

 Question: sir,the nuclear spin of even-even nucleon system is 0 and odd A nucleon system will depend upon the last unpaired nucleon.My question is what is the nuclear spin of odd-odd nucleon system.suppose the last proton has j=7/2 and last neutron has j=5/2 then what will be the nuclear spin ofthe system By: chirag     Date: 2013-05-05 The co-ordinator will post his answer
