Thanks a lot for your reply Dr. Lemkul. It is working now. The velocities
are matching exactly as I have given them in the .gro file.
But as the velocities I am giving are not very well calculated, the results
are not very useful. If i wanted to give a group of atoms a certain
velocity with respect to another group of atoms in my system (for example,
if i had a system with a protein and a CNT and I wanted to start the
simulation with an initial velocity of the CNT with respect to the protein)
what shoud I do?
I understand that this is not an error related to GROMACS but it would be
very much helpful for me if you could shed some light on the problem that I
Thanks in advance.
