What are the universal forces?
There are four fundamental forces. They are also called universal forces.
They are the strong nuclear force, the electromagnetic force, the weak
nuclear force, and gravity. The strong nuclear force is the strongest and
gravity is the weakest.
Scientists are trying to find a way to link all the forces together.
That's what James Maxwell
did with electrical and magnetic forces. He found that they could be
linked together so now we only have the electromagnetic force.
