Dear all,
I have a question regarding eField calculation.
In page 31 of Bionanotechnology tutorial (Alek Aksimentiev, Jeffrey Comer, May 2007), the
relationship of voltage and electric field is given as
eFieldz/(kcal/mol.A.e)=-23.060549 (U/V)/(lz/A)
and the value of lz can be obtained from c_z of sample.xsc.

My question is that if I applied a vacuum gap at z-axis, how can I calculate the eFieldz?
Does the value of lz containing the width of vacuum gap in z-axis?
