Progress towards final unification has proceeded by a series of ‘successive approximations’ allowing more and more accurate predictions over a wider and wider range of phenomena. Nevertheless, there is no single model available that fully incorporates the standard model of nuclear physics, quantum mechanics and general relativity. There is serious doubt about the currently believed basic concepts and advanced mathematics of unified models. In this context, by considering the strength of the Schwarzschild interaction as ‘unity’ and by considering the squared Avogadro number as a suitable scaling factor, the authors have made an attempt to understand the basics of nuclear physics with three assumptions and have developed many useful semi-empirical relations in a constructive approach. The key point to be noted is that the electromagnetic interaction and the strong interaction both seem to be associated with two different gravitational constants. It is hoped that the proposed assumptions and accurate results may be useful in developing a unified model of nuclear physics.
