Hi there,
as far as i know it (and correct me if i'm wrong)
when calculating solvation energy i need to take into account two main
factors:
1. electrostatic energy (from PB).
2. surface area term.
how exactly do i calculate factor no. 2 using the APBS package?
i can calculate surface area and weighted surface area using acc, but i
don't know exactly what is this weighted surface area, and how it's
calculated (refs are welcome).
thanks,
t.
