The Strong Nuclear Force

Published by at 6:13 pm under Nuclear Physics,Quantum Mechanics

I think of the strong nuclear force as being due to the vortices* from an electron setting up standing waves within the protons and neutrons within the nucleus of an atom.  For anyone willing to make a try at the math, the Schrödinger equation may be a good place to start.  These standing waves, it is presumed, set up quite nicely within an alpha particle since an alpha particle is very stable.
As a possible consequence, it may be that all nucleons within an intact nucleus have roughly equal positive charges.  In the case where a neutron is ejected from a nucleus, it would gather all the vortices it needs as it takes off and becomes of neutral charge.
