Creating a Bulk Water Model (GUI)
Bulk (periodic) systems are the staple diet of the molecular dynamicist, particularly systems that are isotropic. This example illustrates how to generate a simple bulk configuration of liquid water.
We need a water molecule. We could load one in, but its marginally more interesting to build one from scratch. So, we’ll place an oxygen atom down somewhere and automatically add hydrogens to it.
