There are some common calculations done by the beginning student of nanoscience and I thought it would be good to go over some of these calculations in a video and post it to Youtube.  This is mostly to help my students but others may find it useful.  I was inspired by Salman Khan over at Khan Academy: .  I used three tools to create these videos.  The first is SmoothDraw which is used to draw the programs:  The second is DreamCalc which is a scientific calculator: .  The third is Camtasia which records everything you do on the computer:  Finally I also used a Logitech web cam to record the vocals and a Wacom digitizing tablet to draw.


In this example I calculate the surface area in square meters per gram for a given type of nanoparticle.

Welcome back between Bloggers at The International NanoScience Community!



Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
