    The strong force falls off very rapidly with distance. outside of the nucleus, it is effectively zero. 

    wikipedia:

    In particle physics, the strong interaction is the mechanism responsible for the strong nuclear force, and is one of the four known fundamental interactions, with the others being electromagnetism, the weak interaction, and gravitation. At the range of 10^−15 m, the strong force is approximately 137 times as strong as electromagnetism, a million times as strong as the weak interaction, and 10^38 times as strong as gravitation. The strong nuclear force holds most ordinary matter together because it confines quarks into hadron particles such as the proton and neutron. In addition, the strong force binds these neutrons and protons to create atomic nuclei. Most of the mass of a common proton or neutron is the result of the strong force field energy; the individual quarks provide only about 1% of the mass of a proton.
