Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Simple Liquids
Speer, Owner F.; Wengerter, Brian C.; Taylor, Ramona S.
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n9 p1330-1332 Sep 2004
An experiment, in which students were given the opportunity to perform molecular dynamics simulations on a series of molecular liquids using the Amber suite of programs, is presented. They were introduced to both physical theories underlying classical mechanics simulations and to the atom-atom pair distribution function.
