How do you plan on decreasing the distance between the graphene and the target?
no such thing as a silly question ... it's always good to askSorry, I did see your response but didn't get round to responding, but it did make me realise why it was a bit of a silly question.
yes, they are different sizes and masses ... an atom of say lead is much bigger and heavier than an atom of say hydrogenI thought atoms were different sizes.
you can break down a molecule to its individual atoms, but again, not by squashing the moleculeBut what if it was a molecule of several atoms? could the pressure force it to break up?
