A cubic unit cell in DFT of volume 'V' has 'n' atoms in it, for an extended volume V' how many atoms would be there in the new volume?

We can also assume the lattice parameter of the cubic unit cell to be a and the that of the extended cell to be a', which means that V' = (a')^3 So is the number of atoms n' in the extended volume V' ...

Energy balance in a molecular dynamics simulation with ghost atoms and periodic boundary conditions?

I am performing a simulation in LAMMPS with granules (DEM) and I had a question regarding the conservation of energy. If an interaction happens where one granule is in the simulation box and the other ...

Is there an effective way to get the energy of a system from a MD trajectory in postprocessing?

I am trying to get the potential energy of a system at each frame of a molecular dynamics trajectory after running the simulation. My current approach is as follows: Use MDAnalysis to iterate through ...

What formula should I use to calculate the total energy of a linear polymer chain?

I am using the Bead-spring model to model a polymer chain. Suppose, the polymer has 3 monomers in its chain: $$\ce{A1-A2-A3}$$ And, I can use the following formula to calculate the total Lennard-Jones ...

Where should I apply the harmonic spring function in the case of polymer simulation? [closed]

I need to simulate the off-lattice movement of a polymer chain in a 3D space using Monte Carlo simulation. Note this is not a simulation of polymer growth; rather this is about polymer movement/motion....
