[lammps-users] Question about adding forcefield in the input

Hello guys
I am trying to run a simple energy minimization using the tersoff type potential (already specified in the examples). I am facing problem in adding the specified tersoff potentials to my input,

  • My question is can I copy directly the information like “# Test Tersoff/Mod/C model for Si” specified in the “in.tersoff”, to my input in simulation setting for atomic interaction section. or I have to give it a path to tersoff directory to find the perfect potential ?

You cannot make things up but rather have to follow what the documentation says (for each command you use).
