Week-force responsible for radioactive decay. very short range
Force-of-gravity attracts due to their mass, weakest of the four forces. Infinite range
normal-force a force that is perpendicular to this common surface
friction a force that acts parallel to the common surface of contact, resisting motion between the two surfaces
