Hi,

with "interaction diameter" I mean the following:

I have two spheres with a radii of 2.5 angstrom.
The spheres should not overlap.

>From that, I derive my 'interaction diameter'/'interaction distance' 5
angstrom.

Now, the 5 angstroms should be the \sigma in the following formulas

> c^6 = 4 \epsilon \sigma^6
> c^12 = 4 \epsilon \sigma^12

Is it so?

Best, grita
