If a GUT is proven, and the four forces are unified, it will still be correct to say that the orbit of the moon is determined by the gravitational force. Explain why.

Expert Solution
To determine

An explanation corresponding to the fact that if a GUT is proven, and the four forces are unified, it will still be correct to say that the orbit of the moon is determined by gravitational force. The logic to unify the electric and magnetic forces

Explanation of Solution

There are four different fundamental forces in nature. These are gravitational force, weak nuclear force, strong nuclear force, and electromagnetic force. These forces are differentiable under the normal circumstances. However, they are connected to each other on the atomic level and there are some conditions under which these forces are intimately connected, even indistinguishable.

The theory that links/unifies these forces on the atomic level is known as Grand Unified Theory (GUT)...
