I'm sorry that I didn't express myself exactly.
I just want to compute the force first.
I don't major chemistry, so I have no idea how to write the script code.
I asked one person who majors chemistry, he gave me one file about force
field parameter,
now, I'll try to compute the force between two atoms.
Good luck.
Thank you.

classify how?

VMD has no intrinsic modeling capabilities, so you'd have to write some
script code (TCL or Python) to compute those forces yourself.
