# Could there be a force between the weak and strong forces? [closed]

Could there be a force between the weak and strong forces?

Is possible to switch from one force to another or is mandatory to use the Higgs Field as like a monitor/projector of the 4 forces?

The idea of ​​an channel between 2 forces mathematically can not do it without passing for the Higgs mechanism?

How the equations have been set today is an exclusive use of high energies, such as GeV or TeV, for a similar idea?

• It is called the electromagnetic force. – Lawrence B. Crowell Apr 19 '17 at 11:18
• The names of these forces suggest they are similar and can be ordered on some scale, but they can not. It is best to them as two completely independent forces with an unfortunate choice of names. for further info see wiki – Crimson Apr 19 '17 at 11:29
• Are you suggesting that to switch from one force to another it is mandatory to use the higgs field ? The idea of ​​an channel between 2 forces mathematically can not do it without passing for the higgs mechanism /high energy (TeV) ? – lab teh Apr 20 '17 at 7:27
• 1) What do you understand on "switching the forces"? 2) How does Higgs come in this? Higgs relates to the weak interaction. 3) Your last sentence isn't very comprehensible for me, please make it more clear. | I voted to reopen, but I know it won't be enough. – peterh Apr 20 '17 at 9:53

Well, it isn't entirely clear what that means. There cannot be any (renormalizable) interactions between gluons, which mediate the strong force, and $W$ and $Z$ bosons, which mediate the weak force, because any hypothetical interactions would violate symmetries (Lorentz or gauge) that particles must obey. So in that sense, the force between forces is impossible.
