Dear All,

For the results of MD,there are kinetic energy,
potential energy and relative energy. I think all
these should be relative quantity. Will you please
tell me in which state the protein has absolute 0

After energy minimization, we get a protein
conformation with the lowest energy and this number is
usually negative. Can we difine the energy in this
conformation as 0 energy? For the kinetics energy, it
should has some relation with the velocity, however
the initial velocity is produced randomly. Does this
means that the initial kinetic energy will be a random

I am looking somebody to clarify these.

Best regards.
