Folder A Comparison of Scale

In order to grasp many of the concepts associated with micro and nano-size devices, one needs to understand scale and the size of objects associated with different scales. This learning module introduces various concepts associated with scale, and a comparison of the macro, micro, and nano-scales. Activities provide the opportunity to further explore the macro, micro and nano scales and their associations with micro and nanotechnology.
