# [AMBER] how to make a certain ionic concentration for the system?

Hi Amber users,

I'm trying to add ions to make a certain ionic concentration for my system, like 0.15 mol/L KCL.
And I search in the mail list and find Thomas Cheatham III's script:

--tec3

molarity.perl

#!/usr/sbin/perl

\$molar = \$ARGV[0];
\$box_x = \$ARGV[1];
\$box_y = \$ARGV[2];
\$box_z = \$ARGV[3];
\$box_a = \$ARGV[4];
\$box_b = \$ARGV[5];
\$box_g = \$ARGV[6];

if (\$box_x == 0) {
printf("Usage: molarity box-x box-y box-z alpha beta gamma\n");
die;
}

if (\$box_y == 0) {
\$box_y = \$box_x;
}

if (\$box_z == 0) {
\$box_z = \$box_x;
}

if (\$box_a == 0) {
\$box_a = 90.0;
}

if (\$box_b == 0) {
\$box_b = \$box_a;
}

if (\$box_g == 0) {
\$box_g = \$box_a;
}

\$torad = 2 * 3.141592654 / 360.0;

\$angles = sqrt(\$angles);

\$volume = \$box_x * \$box_y * \$box_z * \$angles;

\$molecules = 6.022 * \$volume * \$molar / 10000;

printf(" MOLARITY = %8.3f\n", \$molar);
printf(" Box size = %8.3f %8.3f %8.3f %8.3f %8.3f %8.3f\n", \$box_x, \$box_y, \$box_z, \$box_a, \$box_b, \$box_g);
printf(" Volume = %8.3f\n", \$volume);
printf("\n %8.3f molecules are necessary to make a molarity of %6.2f M\n\n", \$molecules, \$molar);

I'm wondering how to get the x,y,z and alpha, beta, gamma value?
I reviewed the leap.log files and not sure about what these value are.

Does anyone use this scrip to count the ion number?

Thanks a lot.
