Il calcolo delle cariche parziali atomiche

Le cariche parziali da usare nel campo di forze si ottengono generalmente da calcoli quantomeccanici. Nel caso di molecole rigide, il calcolo delle cariche è abbastanza semplice. Nel caso di molecole flessibili, occorre valutare quanto le diverse conformazioni influenzano la … Continue reading

La Dinamica Molecolare: il Campo di Forze

Then from these forces, by other propositions which are also mathematical, I deduce the motions of the planets, the comets, the moon, and the sea. I wish we could derive the rest of the phenomena of Nature by the same … Continue reading
