The physical causes of gravity and the related strong force are developed quantitatively with major improvements in the “pushing gravity” concepts of Le Sage and others. Large particles and objects are shown able to coast through a gas of subatomic particles without loss of velocity or energy. The strong force declines with the 4th power of distance, and the strong force of a small particle on a large one is greater than the strong force of the large one on the small one, making small particles very suitable for retaining nuclear components.
