7.4. Cross: Bond-Angle¶

7.4.1. Functional Form¶

The Bond-Angle Cross Potential has the functional form:

$$E={{N}_{1,ijk}}\left( {{R}_{ij}}-{{R}_{1,ij}} \right)\left( {{\theta }_{ijk}}-{{\theta }_{0,ijk}} \right)+{{N}_{2,ijk}}\left( {{R}_{jk}}-{{R}_{2,jk}} \right)\left( {{\theta }_{ijk}}-{{\theta }_{0,ijk}} \right)$$

This term is part of the Class2 Angle Potential style.

The force-field parameters for this potential and units are given by:

 Equation Symbol Parameter Definition Units $$N_{1,ijk}$$ Cross potential bond-angle coefficient for atoms [i,j,k] energy/length/degrees $$N_{2,ijk}$$ Cross potential bond-angle coefficient for atoms [i,j,k] energy/length/degrees $$R_{1,ij}$$ Equilibrium bond length for atoms [i,j] length $$R_{2,jk}$$ Equilibrium bond length for atoms [j,k] length $${\theta }_{0,ijk}$$ Equilibrium angle for atoms [i,j,k] degrees
