Jmol measurements

  • Distance (2 atoms):

    1. double-click on the starting atom

    2. to fix a distance measurement, double-click on second atom

  • Angle (3 atoms):

    1. double-click on the starting atom

    2. click on the second atom (central atom in angle)

    3. to fix an angle measurement, double-click on third atom

  • Torsion angle or dihedral (4 atoms)

    1. double-click on the starting atom

    2. click on the second atom

    3. click on the third atom

    4. to fix a dihedral angle measurement, double-click on fourth atom

  • In all cases:

    • move pointer over destination atom in order to see measurement results without leaving a permanent measurement

    • move outside the window in order to cancel the measurement

    • make the same measurement again in order to delete the measurement
