The impact dynamics of micro-scale mechanisms deviates from the classical theories applied to traditional macro-systems, This is because of multiplicity of forces acting in nano-scale contacts, which have negligible effect at the larger scale. A fundamental understanding of these forces and their interplay is required to advise design of such mechanisms based on fundamental physics. The paper highlights the significance of some of these forces and circumstances where their influence becomes significant.
