# What units is strong nuclear charge measured in? [duplicate]

Do particles have a strong nuclear charge in the same way as they have electric charge? If so what unit would be used to measure this? Would it be measured in Coulomb for instance?

Color charge is not really analogous to electric charge in this sense. Electric charge has one value (which is some number multiplied by the electron charge). But color charge can be one of six possible values (red, blue, green, and antired, antiblue, antigreen). These are quantum numbers we assign to the six different flavor of quarks which combine to form hadrons. While particles like $$\pi^-$$, K$$^-$$, protons, $$\Delta^-$$, $$\Delta^{++}$$ etc., can have a net electric charge, all particles containing quarks must always have zero, or neutral, net color charge due to quark confinement
