I am trying to create a sphere of diameter in nanometers range representing
a nanoparticle in a simulation. I tried graphic tools of VMD and I am
obtaining a sphere as required using sphere command but I am not sure how
to give properties of a particle viz. mass and degrees of freedom.
I need to simulate a nanoparticle covered with a monolayer of polymeric
capping agent and I don't require effect of material properties of
nanoparticle at the current stage. So I don't want to use nanoparticle
builders as mentioned in DISCUS or OpenMD and simulate the nanoparticle as
If there is any possible way to achieve this on VMD, if so some insight
would be much appreciated.
