    The world at the scale of atoms and molecules is difficult to describe and hard to imagine.
    At very small scales, the properties of a material, such as colour, magnetism and the ability to conduct electricity, also change in unexpected ways.
    What does scale mean? Can you replace it with another simple English word?

    Re: Scale

    Scale here means size or ratio in comparison to other objects. In this context it is not easy to replace it with another single word.

    Re: Scale

    Thanks Curmudgeon!

    Actually, I do understand the meaning of scale. But I am postgraduate studying Tranlsation. My target language is one of the most richest languages in the world, Chinese. So it is so difficult to find the precise one as there are too many equivalent words in Chinese.

    By the way, could anyone translate those into Chinese? That would be grateful.
