The long distance force between quarks in the U(1) approximation to quantum chromodynamics is calculated on a home made reduced instruction set computer optimized for that purpose. It is found that previous calculations were in error by as much as 85% due to contamination by the Coulomb interaction. The Coulomb constant, measured for the first time in this work, agrees with analytically obtained values.
