the k value used in the dihedral function is pk, but this is the total for
rotating that bond (in this case 14.5). since there are multiple sets of 4
atoms that contribute, the total is divided by the idivf, the expected
number of 4atomsets that will have this applied. each will get in this
case 1/4 of the total (1 over the first number after the xccx in the .dat
file), or 3.625.
the 2 in red is the periodicity of this dihedral term  see
