    According to my sources, the strengths are as follows:

    Gravity: weakest

    Weak force:: 10^37 times stronger than gravity

    Electromagetic: 10^42 times stronger than gravity

    Strong force: 10^44 times stronger than gravity:

    Well for starters they're completely different forces, you can't compare them like that. The strong nuclear force is what holds the particles together, the weak nuclear force is responsible for changing the flavor of particles, such as turning an up quark into a down quark or something like that.
