1.1. Gravitational Energy

1.1.1. depends in: masses of two bodies distance apart gravitational constant

1.1.2. the gravitational potential energy that two bodies with a mass have in relation.

1.1.3. formula U=m⋅g⋅h U=gravitational energy(joules) m=mass of the object accelerating(kg) g=acceleration of the object (m/s) h=distance between the bodies(m)

2. Strong Nuclear Force

2.1. It is the strongest but it has a short rage in which its particles should be really close to have an actual repercution.

2.2. Main Function

2.2.1. Hold together nucleons (+, neutral)

2.3. How it works?

2.3.1. It is created between nucleons in an interchange of mesons. (Pi)

2.3.2. To be effective it should has a distance of about a diameter of a proton.

2.4. F= G m1 m2/ r^2

2.5. (2017). The Strong Nuclear Force. [online] Available at: The Strong Nuclear Force [Accessed 9 Aug. 2017].

3. There are four main and basic forces in energy.

4. Weak Nuclear Force

4.1. Stronger than gravity.

4.2. Effective only in very short distances (10-18m), because the particles involved are so big

4.3. Beta Decay

4.3.1. A neutron disappears and is replaced by a proton, an electron and a neutrino (anti-electron)

4.4. The weak force allows the fusion of protons and neutrons to form deuterium.

5. Electromagnetic Force

5.1. Responsible for most of the interactions, holds electrons in their orbit around the nucleus.

5.2. Form electron bonds among elements and produce molecules and visible matter.

5.3. Produce a magnetic field. Electric waves and magnetic waves are transverse waves, waves at right angles to each other.

5.4. Building blocks of matter.
