I have read that the strong force is 100 times stronger than the electromagnetic force, 10 000 times stronger than the weak force, and 10^39 times stronger than gravity. I searched for a way to describe the force per boson, but could only find a formula for a force per gluon ($hk$), where $h$ is the reduced planck's constant and $k$ is the wavevector. How do we create a ratio for the strength of fundamental forces without knowing force per boson for the other bosons? Can this known ratio be applied to other bosons, from the known force of a photon, to figure out how strong the force exerted by a graviton is?
