# Cohesive energy density calculation

GROMACS version:
GROMACS modification: No

This paper goes over procedure to calculate CED. In a nutshell, you can use following formula to get CED.

CED = \frac{-E_{inter} \rho}{N_m M_w}

E_{inter} = Intermolecular energy
\rho= density
N_m= Number of molecules
M_w= Molecular weight

Calculating E_{inter} is tricky, you need to decide based on your system.
