|Subject:||Re: [ESPResSo-users] Bjerrum Length for Explicit Solvent|

the Bjerrum length is the distance at which two unit charges experience
an electrostatic interaction energy equal to the thermal energy. For water,
this is about 7 Angstrom, independent of whether the solvent is treated
explicitly or implicitly. It would be rather unphysical if this physical quantity
depended on the way you implement a solvent in your computer program.
It is rather the other way around: Whatever you do to your computer model,
you must make sure that physical parameters are reproduced, and the
Bjerrum length is one such.
