## The Nature of Yukawa's Nuclear Force and Charge

**Authors:** Jean Louis Van Belle

This paper builds on our previous paper and further explores the math and the physics of Yukawa’s potential function for the nucleus. It calculates forces and provides a formula for the nucleon charge (Yukawa's nucleon charge is the equivalent of the electron charge for the nuclear force). We find its numerical value is equal to (the square root of) the product of Euler’s number, the fine-structure constant, Planck’s constant and the speed of light. To make sense of this result, we need to accept the notion of a nuclear charge, which is nothing but the concept of the strong charge that goes with the strong force.
The model is, of course, purely theoretical: the objective is to only to explore theoretical concepts using numerical data for protons and neutrons. Our next paper will try to see whether or not these explorations make sense when analyzed in the context of quark theory.
