Nonlinearities in nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) play a vital role in dynamics of the device. Clear understanding of nonlinearities and ability to tune and manipulate them to enhance the performance are crucial for applications with these devices. Here, we utilize an electrostatic mechanism to tune the geometric nonlinearity of an atomically thin NEMS. The exquisite tuning enables us to demonstrate hardening, softening, and mixed nonlinear responses in the device. The electrostatic tuning over the nonlinearity is utilized to effectively nullify Duffing nonlinearity in a specific regime. The observed mixed nonlinear response is the result of cross coupling between strong quadratic and quartic nonlinearities, an aspect explained by method of multiple scale analysis.
