Good morning,
I would like to compute the self-diffusion of N2 within a porous material using namd.
I need to place a point charge on each N atom plus a point charge in the center of mass of the N2 molecule. In other words, I need something like a "virtual site" or a "dummy atom" having charge but not mass and being placed in the center of the N2 molecule.

Which is the best way to do this with NAMD?
Thanks a lot for the attention,
best regards,
