Ok, thanks for learifivcation.
Dear Justin I have one another query regarding
pulling using umbrella sampling. See these two lines below.
Eg. Pull group natoms pbc atom distance at start reference at
1 31 1387
2 31 686 7.424 nm
When we use grompp for obtaining .tpr file before mdrun of pulling. We see
2 lines which are shown just above .
My query is that why it is written 7.424 nm in the second line below the
distance at start (written in the first line).
I am asking because, in my thinking my object( reference group ) is very
close to wall ( nearly 2 nm away from the wall of yz. here I am
pulling in + x direction), which I can see in VMD. Does this distance is
distance from the pull group to the reference group or
distance between pulled group to the wall near the reference group.
