What are gluons? | Space

Written by admin

Gluons are aptly named because they are the “glue” that holds quarks together to form protons and neutrons.

They are the bearers of the strong force, one of the four fundamental forces. Force-carrying particles like gluon, as well as the photon for the electromagnetic force, and the W and Z bosons for the weak force, they are all massless particles with a quantum spin of 1 and are collectively called “gauge bosons”.
