- Protons' repulsion within a nucleus 3 answers
The nucleus of an atom is made up of protons and neutrons. So if there are many protons inside nucleus even though there are neutrons why don't this protons may repel away breaking nucleus apart?
The answer I get is "it is because of the nuclear force (which is the strongest force)". When I asked this question to my chemistry teacher he was like you just destroyed chemistry..
I think this is the right place to ask it.
