User: Why do protons stay together in the nucleus rather than repel each other? Electrons in surrounding atoms cancel the repulsive forces between protons. Electrostatic forces between protons and neutrons hold the nucleus together. Nuclear forces overcome electrostatic forces between protons in the nucleus. Neutrons surround protons and keep them far enough apart to prevent repulsion.
