help:question about "units" in colloidal system


I have a question about “units”
Can i use “units: metal” to model gold particles by DLVO potential (colloid and yukawa/colloid potential ) ?
Thanks in advance


You can simulate any model and potential
in any units that LAMMPS provides. It's up
to you to provide the input parameters (atom
positions, force field params, etc) in the
appropriate consistent units. If you do
that LAMMPS will give identical output
for any units you choose (so long as you also
interpret the output in the appropriate units).
