Molecular dynamics


A dynamics which explains macroscopic phenomena with the behavior of molecular motion based on classical dynamics.

Molecular dynamics treats gas, liquid, and solid materials indiscriminately as a mass of molecules, and studies macroscopic properties of such a system and physicochemical phenomena that take place in it. With molecular dynamics, not only the thermodynamic properties of a system but also kinetic properties can be analyzed.
