The system works now, thanks for finding a simple mistake. Another question
I had is if I want to calculate the average velocities of all the atoms over
a period of time can I use g_traj to create an average velocity of the
atoms, but looking at all_veloc.xvg file the atom number starts at 0 so I
don't know where to cross reference it with another file to coordinates of
that atom. Is there a function in GROMACS that will give averages of
velocities and positions of atoms?
Thanks,
Andy
