a nucleon is a subatomic.particle such as a proton or neutron in the nucleus of an atom.(part of what comprises an atom); within this nucleus the strange quarks reside; the photon is a nucleon; material objects are held together by some force or other, such as nucleons in a nucleus by the nuclear force, see binding energy; electrons in an atom by the electric force (Electromagnetic Force); cellulose molecules of wood by the balance of atomic (Strong Force) and molecular forces (Weak Force) and the material of stars by the gravitational force.

Bohr, Niels.1885-1962
A Nobel Prize winner, Niels Bohr was known not only for his own theoretical work, but also as a mentor to younger physicists who themselves made important contributions to physical theory. As the director of the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Copenhagen, Bohr gathered together some of the finest minds in the physics community, such as Werner Heisenberg and George Gawow. During the 1920's, the Institute was the source of many important works in quantum mechanics and theoretical physics in general. The chemical element with the atomic number 107 would be given the official name bohrium (Bh), in honor of Niels Bohr.
