[gmx-users] Reg: Running Energy minimisation for dichloroethane (DCE)

I corrected the mistake what you said and i am able to run energy
minimisation and equilibration. but when i view my em.gro and
equilibration.gro in VMD it seems to me that the bonds between the atoms are
broken in molecules.I used g_energy to check weather the system has
equilibrated to the required temperature (300K) i found that the variation
in the temperature was 100K (plus r minus) . i am not able find out what
went wrong. any help is highly appreciated.
