Featured Simulation

Featured STP Simulation

Molecular Dynamics Demonstration Model
This model is constructed using the Lennard-Jones potential truncated at a distance of 3 molecular diameters. It was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool which allows to you to easily examine or modify the simulation if Ejs is installed.
