Definitions So what is nanoscience? Nanoscience is the study of phenomena and manipulation of materials at the atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales where properties differ significantly from those at a larger scale. So what is nanotechnology? Nanotechnology is the design, characterisation, production and application of structures, devices and systems by controlling shape and size at the nanometre scale. Definition from Royal Society and Royal Academy for Engineering 2004
List 5 bulk properties of metals.
Why are properties of material at the nanoscale important in nanotechnology?
Why does steel wool burn producing a flame, while a steel nail remain red hot
Draw up a table and compare the bulk and nanoscale properties of
