What holds matter together?
Great question! 1) Molecules and atoms are held together by electronic attraction - electromagnetism. It is usually considered under the heading of chemical bonding, which is explained by electromagnetic interaction. Electrons are held in their orbits about the nucleus of an atom by the same electromagnetic force. Chemical bonds could be viewed as an extension of that force. Quantum electrodynamics is usually the heading under which these interactions are examined. 2) The nucleus of the atom is composed of protons and neutrons (1H being the line exception). Atomic nuclei (and all those protons that don't like each other and electromagnetically repel) are held together by nuclear binding energy, or nuclear glue. It is derived from or could be seen to be an extension of the strong force. This binding energy comes from what is called mass defecit - the affected neutrons and protons (during the fusion process) give up a bit of their mass and it is converted into this binding energy. The quarks and gluons that compose individual neutrons and protons are understood to be kept together by the strong interaction or strong force. It is usually considered under the heading of quantum chromodynamics. 3) Of course gravity hold planets, stars, galaxies and loose stuff together generally. It is the large-scale organizer of the universe. The electromagnetic force and the strong force and gravity are three of the four fundamental forces of the universe. Only the weak force, which mediates types of nuclear decay (beta decay being the primary example), is not represented. Wikipedia has more information, and links are provided.

Rather than Gravity , it is Electromagnetic forces which areholding all atoms together and giving the shape of material bodies
The short answer is no. Although matter is affected by electrostatic forces of attraction, no current is flowing and thus it does not fit the definition of electricity (a term for the variety of phenomena resulting from the presence and flow of electric charge).
Motion and mutual gravitational attraction. Another Perspective: Gravity is the only thing required, which is fortunate because it's the only thing there is.
Gravity : Hydrostatic Equilibrium - compression due to gravity is balanced by a pressure gradient force in the opposite direction.
The sun is just a huge ball of hydrogen and helium. The heat created on the sun is from billions of hydrogen atoms smelting together to helium atoms. All these atoms are held together by the gravity.
It is the electromagnetic force as it is expressed in what is called an ionic chemical bond that holds individual molecules of table salt (NaCl) together.
In an ionic bond one element is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. The force keeping these molecules together is the electrostatic attraction between a negative and positive charge.
strong nuclear force. The nucleus is held together by both the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force. The electron is bond to the nucleus by electro-static forces.
The mass of a star holds it together. The gravity of the massatomically draws it toward the middle of the star.
Little Grains that have been in the ground and have been cemented there for a long period of time...... By the way, why you looking up the answers? You shouldn't be. Go tell you teacher of what you have done, I mean it. LOL well that's the answers but stop cheating.
The strong force holds the nucleus together against the repulsion between the electric charges of the protons.
Glycosidic bonds by a condensation reaction froms a Disaccharide of glucose, however many of those of course makes up the polysaccharide. And cellulose is a polysac.... However, if you want to know how, many of cellulose keep themselves together in groups then the answer would be HYDROGENBONDS.
The centromere holds chromosomes together. It is the circle like thing in the middle of the chromosome.
Salt crystals are held together with ionic bonds.. For example, table salt, NaCl, is composed of two ions. The Na ion is positive and the Cl ion is negative. The charges on these ions hold them together into the molecule NaCl.. You can think about this like magnets. The positive end is attracted t…o the negative end of another magnet. This holds the magnets together. (MORE)
The organelle that holds the nucleus together is called thecytosol. Inside the cytosol, there is cytoplasm and there also isendoplasmic reticulum.
By force of attraction. . Depending on the atoms present, the force of attraction could be in the form of ionic bond, covalent bond, coordinate bond, hydrogen bond, van der Waals forces of interaction, dipole dipole interaction etc..
The pubic joint, or symphysis pubis , is a tough piece of fibrocartilage that holds the 2 coxal bones together.
No you asswhole.What kind of dick head are you? Inappropriate answer, tendons hold 2 bones together,
Gravity is the force that pulls matter together. The gravitationalpull is how the moons stay in orbit around a planet.
the strong and weak inter nuclear force in the atoms in between the neutron electron and proton hold the particles together
\nAll the 4 forces known play in keeping matter together.\nGravity keeps planets together and influences all matter with mass (though gravity is so weak at atomic scales that it has so far been ignored at that level). \nThe predominant force keeping electrons tied to their atoms and keeping atoms gr…ouped in molecules is the Electromagnetic force. \nThe force keeping the nucleus of atoms together is the Strong force. \nThen there is the Weak force responsible for beta decay.\nSearch Wikipedia for more information on the forces (MORE)
Matter is quite difficult to break apart - as this requires dissociating the neutrons, protons and electrons. But at sufficiently high energies, it can be done. As in Super nova. Or in a linear accelerator.
Matter attracts each other same as the phenomenon of magnet's unlike and like poles attract and repel each other.
The chemical bond. A bond is formed when there is . sharing of electrons between atoms or . an electrostatic attraction between ions due to one atom losing an electron and another atom gaining it or . an electrostatic attraction between positive and negative areas. It may be: . Hydrogen …Bonding between molecules (As in Water or ethanol) . Ionic Bond (As in salts eg NaCl) . Covalent Bond (As in O 2 or diamond) . Coordinate Covalent Bond (As in NH 4 Cl) . Metallic bonding (As in iron or gold) . Van der Waal forces also called dispersion forces (As in methane or oil) . Dipole interactions (As in HCl) . Or a mixture of the above. (MORE)
2,000 billion billion atoms and molecules,,,atoms are like tinymarbles or ridged sheres,,molecules are groups of atoms =]
Intermolecular forces - Van Der Waals (London Dispersion Forces) mainly Also includes Dipole-Dipole and Induced-Dipole forces in certain compounds, These are weak however so all can be classed together when broken ( Vapourized into a gas) Considerable strengths are Hydrogen Bonding (If H a…nd Fluorine, Oxygen or Nitrogen) are present in the sample. E.g the Entropy of Vapourization of most liquids is 85 - 90 Joules per Kelvin Per Mole However for water (with Hydrogen Bonding) it is around 110 Joules Per Kelvin per Mole. Summary - Intermolecular forces, special if have Hydrogen Bonding (1/10th covalent bond) (MORE)
Gravity does somewhat hold galaxies together. However, at the current estimated speed of the galaxy, gravity alone is not enough to keep the hundreds of thousands of stars from flying off into space. Therefore, it has been proposed by many cosmologists and astrophysicists that there is an "invisible…" matter out there called dark matter which may make up 99% of the universe. This adds enough mass to the galaxy and along with gravity holds the galaxy together. (MORE)
compounds and molecules are made up of atoms held together by chemical bonds, like ionic or covalent bonds.

Actually, there are two forces: the strong nuclear force, which maintains the nucleus, and the electroweak force, which affects the electron shells. The attempt to demonstrate that these are actually aspects of the same force is known as Grand Unified Theory (GUT). If gravity can be shown to be part… of the mix, that will be the Theory of Everything (TOE). (MORE)
The atomic nucleus is held together by the strong atomic force. This force is attractive, regardless of the charge of the constituent particles. Not asked, but answered for completeness sake, the electromagnetic force competes with the strong atomic force, causing a repulsive effect between proto…ns that is a function of the size of the nucleus. Nuclei greater than 82=lead are unstable due to this competition. Also, the weak atomic force enters in, causing instability as a function of proton/neutron ratio and other factors. (MORE)
There are two types of Electric charge that hold an atom together: Positive and Negative. If the two charges are opposites (e.g. Positive and Negative), then they will attract. Hence, like charges will repel and go separate ways.
The surface tension of the water holds it together. Water has an almost magnetic property in that it sticks to itself. The raindrops physically cannot be too bog because air resistance would rip it apart, but it has great enough surface tension to avoid being reduced to individual molecules.
It is held by an ionic bond between Na and Cl atoms. It is formed when sodium looses an electron and Cl gains one.
It is actually the egg and milk in the pancake batter that holds ittogether. The milks lactose reacts chemically with the flour andmany other ingredients and creates gluten, which hardens thepancake batter and holds it together.
holding together means that all the power is given to only one person . some example like india. .
The electromagnetic force holds unlike particles of matter together. In chemistry, that would be positively and negatively charged ions, and the protons and electrons in individual atoms.

Halite or sodium chloride! :D u r special just believe it u r awesome
Chemical bonds. For example, with ionic bonds it is the attraction of opposite charges. With covalent bonds it is the sharing of electrons.
i really don't know this maybe gonna get you angry cause i didn't answer you're question but all you is a hater
It is impossible to tell what holds the discs together without more information. Please be more specific in your question. There are many different types of disks, all of which would be held together differently.
When several ribosomes are attached to one mRNA strip it is calledpolysome.So, mRNA holds together the ribosomes in a polysome.
