# What are found in the nucleus and have a positive charge?

Jan 2, 2017

$\text{Protons}$, massive fundamental particles of positive unit charge........
And $\text{neutrons}$, massive fundamental particles with neutral charge........
At extremely short nuclear ranges, these particles engage in the $\text{strong nuclear force}$, which is strong enough to overcome the forces of electrostatic repulsion that operate between like charges. For better info you will have to ask a question in the Physicz forums
