A lone proton in between a crystal lattice could find itself with more negative charge then equilibrium from the neighbouring clouds of electrons. Thus there is a compressive force driven by the lattice and heat, in addition to proton repulsion of the nuclear force. I expect over time their will be a determination that the coulomb barrier may not be static ...

In the nuclear shell model, you can assign "orbitals" to each nucleon analogous to the orbitals assigned to electrons. Like the electrons, you can promote a nucleon into an empty orbital above the Fermi energy by exciting the nucleus with a photon — a gamma ray rather than a visible photon. The structure of the energy levels is pretty complicated: much more ...

If you had a mole of electrons and a mole of protons and put them together, they would make hydrogen. The transition from ions to ground-state atoms would release 13.6 eV/atom or about 1300 kJ/mol. This mole of hydrogen would have a mass of one gram. For comparison, combustion of 1 kg of gasoline releases about 44 MJ of heat; your completely-ionized ...

I assume that what you're getting at is something like "what would it look like if we created something the size and mass of a basketball, made of only neutrons?" If this is what you're getting at, you should consider what is meant by what something "looks like". This generally means how does visible wavelength light interact with it? A regular basketball ...
