To determine

The four fundamental interactions of nature. Also, discuss their relative strengths as well as effective range.


The four fundamental interactions are:

  1. Electromagnetic radiation: These interactions have second most strength (1036) after strong forces and its range infinite.
  2. Gravitational interactions: These interactions have least strength among all the interactions and its range is infinite.
  3. Strong force: These interactions have highest strength (1038) among all interactions and its range is
