Apparently, in the file the unit in the file is cP. It might be the case
that I plotted the wrong column. I think I should get the third column.
Regarding the diffusion, I read in papers about rotational diffusion of the
proteins which could be calculated having the viscosity of the liquid and
hydrodynamic volume of the protein. So, volume could be calculated with
radius of gyration + 0.3nm of hydration shell and viscosity is given by
g_energy. So, a rotational diffusion constant could be theoretically

Is the experimental value 0.854 at that temperature?
Could be the the unit is different in the output too. Doesn't it say in
the xvg file?

Why not use g_msd?
