I am using flexibale water model for my system. I am refering a paper J.
Chem. Phys. 124, 024503 (2006). Author have used Amber type force field.
i.e. 1/2 Kbond (r-req)**2 + 1/2 Kangle(theta-thetaeq)**2.
Kbond = 443153.3808 kJ/mol nm**2
Kangle= 317.5656 kJ/mol rad**2.
I am using olss-aa force field parameters in Gromacs VERSION 4.0.7.
I checked some papers in which author have used opls aa force field. 1/2
factor is not in opls force field IF I compare opls and amber.
My question is in .itp file should I use Kbond and Kangle as it is or
should I consider the 1/2 factor then I use them.
