Re: AMBER: Regarding Dielectric Constant in AMBER8

the energy is the product of the charges divided
by the product of distance and dieletric. If the dielectric is rij, then
then
energy is (qi*qj)/(r*r). so, the distance dependence of the interaction
energy
is 1/r^2, but the dielectric itself is only 1/r.
