The question of size is of overwhelming importance for small particles. To define the question we need to state precisely what we mean by the word size. It may mean some geometric size, which is relevant for obvious reasons, and which has given the name to the field of nanoscience (science where the studied objects are less than a micrometer in at least one dimension); it may mean the number of monomers in a particle, and it may mean the effective number of degrees of freedom.
