SPC/E model of water
The SPC/E (extended simple point charge model) ?UNIQ07be08afbd145544-ref-0000002B-QINU? ?UNIQ07be08afbd145544-ref-0000002C-QINU? is a slight reparameterisation of the SPC model of water, with a modified value for ?UNIQ07be08afbd145544-math-0000002D-QINU?. The molecule is modelled as a rigid isosceles triangle, having charges situated on each of the three atoms. Apart from Coulombic interactions, the molecules interact via long-range Lennard-Jones sites, situated on the oxygen atoms. The parameters are as follows:
