This paper deals with amplitude-frequency response of electrostatic nanotube nanotweezer device system. Soft alternating current (AC) of frequency near natural frequency actuates the nanotubes. This leads the system into parametric resonance. The Method of Multiple Scales (MMS) in which the nonlinear electrostatic and van der Waals forces are expanded in Taylor series is used to compare two expansions, one up to third power and the other up to fifth power. The frequency response of the system is reported and the effects of van der Waals forces, electrostatic forces, and damping forces on the frequency response are investigated.
