- Today many objects are getting smaller from their origional form. E.g. Mobile phones are smaller and can do many more things.

- This is due to the increase use of nano science.

- Nano science is the study of particals within the size range of 1-100 nm.

- 1nm = 1x10 (to the power)-9 m 

- By reducing the size of particals the properties of the material will change and lead to new uses.

- E.g. Plasters for cuts are now coated with nanosized silver
