Molecular Machines/Motors
 Molecular machines can be defined as devices that can produce useful work through the interaction of individual molecules at the molecular scale of length.
 A convenient unit of measurement at the molecular  scale would be a nanometer. Hence, molecular machines also fall into the category of nanomachines.
 As our knowledge and understanding of thesenumerous machines continues to increase, we now  see a possibility of using the natural machines, or creating synthetic ones from scratch, by mimicking nature.

Different types of molecular machines. These machines used by naturefor force generation and motion.
They convert chemical energy intomechanical force via conformational changes.
