The adequate modeling of the micro/nano arc resonators' dynamics is vital for their successful implementation. Here, a size-dependent model, wherein material structure, porosity, and micro-rotation effects of the grains are considered, is derived by combining the couple stress theory, multi-phase model, and the classical Euler–Bernoulli beam model, aiming to characterize the frequency tunability of micro/nano arc resonators as monitoring either the axial load or the electrostatic force for the first time. The arc dimensions are optimized to show various phenomena in the same arc, namely snap-through, crossing, and veering. The first three natural frequencies are monitored, showing the size dependency on the frequency tuning, snap-through/back, and pull-in instability as shrinking the scale from micro- to nano-scale. Significant changes in the static snap-through and pull-in voltages and the resonance frequencies were shown as scale shrinks. A dynamic analysis of the resonator's vibration shows a dramatic effect of the size-dependency as shrinking dimensions around the veering zone.
