I was hoping someone could explain to me this apparent discrepency:
I did an equilibration run and the final volume, stated in the .log file,
is 49698.7591 angstroms^3.
I read the .coor file into vmd and calculated the cell volume by selecting
all the atoms in the system using the 'min-max' tcl function to calculate
the cellvectors: the cell volume from this calculation is: 55,706
What is the deal? 49698.7591 angstroms^3 compared to 55,706 angstroms^3
is a BIG difference.
I really need to understand this discrepency because I want to ensure
the water density is OK.
Also the cellOrigin moved during the NPT simulation from
cellOrigin -0.14305 0.47288 0.31587
before the simulation, to
vmd > measure center $system
cellOrigin 0.211786702275 0.572636842728 0.261837869883
after the simulation... the cell origin was suppose to remain unchanged
