This question already has an answer here:

I know most of the "mass" comes from the binding energy such as gluon but suppose I apply a force on a matter particle, do I change the interaction between the particle and the higgs field? How does it work?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • $\begingroup$ @Qmechanic: I looked up Yukawa interaction for hours but still not quite get it, can you show me how the other answer helps explain higgs mechanism, the result I got are meson and binding nuclear forces. $\endgroup$ – user6760 Jan 9 at 10:35
  • $\begingroup$ For starters, consider to remove the obsolete notion of relativistic mass. This only obfuscates the real question here. $\endgroup$ – Qmechanic Jan 9 at 10:39
  • $\begingroup$ @Qmechanic: I found spontaneous symmetry breaking and fields can interact with each others, I hope I'm on the right track thank you. $\endgroup$ – user6760 Jan 9 at 10:53
