The simple point charge (SPC) model [1] is an empirical model of water. The molecule is modelled as a rigid isosceles triangle, having charges situated on each of the three atoms. As well as Coulombic interactions, the molecules interact via long-range Lennard-Jones sites, situated on the oxygen atoms. The parameters are as follows:

parameter value
\sigma  3.166
\epsilon 0.650 kJ mol-1
r_\mathrm{OH} 1.000
\angle_\mathrm{HOH} 109.47^{\circ}
q_{\mathrm{O}} -0.82 e
q_{\mathrm{H}} |q_{\mathrm{O}}|/2 (charge neutrality)

The SPC model has a dipole moment of 2.27 D.

Surface tension[edit]

The surface tension has been studied for the SPC model by Vega and Miguel. [2]
