Thanks for the reply. I understand what units are being used. I also
understand that NAMD velocity, except when written to pdb format, needs to
be multiplied by a timefactor, as described in this post:
The issue I have is when I take a pdb velocity file from CHARMM and try to
use it as the NAMD velocity input, NAMD begins with a temperature of 0
Kelvin when it should begin closer to 300 K. Any thoughts on this?
