MSE 4270/6270: Introduction to Atomistic Simulations, Leonid Zhigilei Homework #3 (150 points), page 1 of 2 1. Use MSE627-CG code to create an FCC crystal with 5×5×5 unit cells (500 atoms). In contrast to homework #2, choose the FCC lattice constant a fcc not from the equilibrium interatomic distance that corresponds to the minimum of the interatomic potential (a fcc = 5.4 A), but based on the experimental molar volume of liquid Ar at the melting temperature and 1 atm pressure, 29 cm 3 /mole. Give the value of the lattice parameter you use to build the initial system in your report. 2. Find the temperature at which the Ar crystal melts: perform a series of simulations at constant density and different temperatures, so that you have several (3-4) runs below the melting point and several (3-4) above the melting point. Use visual analysis of the final configurations to distinguish between liquid and solid states. Run each simulation for a time sufficient to equilibrate the system and to find equilibrium energies and temperature. Explain

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
