strong force

To understand the universe, you need to understand the different forces that govern it. In this 11-minute video, episode 6 of Subatomic Stories, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains the nature of the forces that govern the microcosm.

Quarks are fundamental subatomic particles found in the center of atoms. They interact strongly with one another and are the building blocks of protons and neutrons. Two of them were discovered at Fermilab. In episode 2 of Subatomic Stories, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln tells us about these fascinating particles.

What does “color” mean in the quantum realm? And where did the idea come from? Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains in this 6-minute video.

What are the big ideas of quantum chromodynamics? What does quark “color” refer to? How does the strong force act like a rubber band? Don Lincoln explains.
