This script calculates the true center-of-mass (COM) or the center-of-geometry (COG) for a given selection and returns the x, y, z values in the form of a [[Pseudoatom]] (rather than a CGO sphere).  The benefit of using a [[Pseudoatom]] is that it can be selected and used in calculations.  In addition, this script also iteratively goes through all states of a selection if more than one state exists and appends the corresponding COM/COG values as states into the [[Pseudoatom]].  The script itself is quite simple yet robust enough to be applied in different settings.  As well, the calculation of the COM/COG is handled independently from the formation of the [[Pseudoatom]] and can be called as an independent function where applicable.

Description

This script calculates the true center-of-mass (COM) or the center-of-geometry (COG) for a given selection and returns the x, y, z values in the form of a Pseudoatom (rather than a CGO sphere). The benefit of using a Pseudoatom is that it can be selected and used in calculations. In addition, this script also iteratively goes through all states of a selection if more than one state exists and appends the corresponding COM/COG values as states into the Pseudoatom. The script itself is quite simple yet robust enough to be applied in different settings. As well, the calculation of the COM/COG is handled independently from the formation of the Pseudoatom and can be called as an independent function where applicable.

Usage

com selection [,state=None [,mass=None [,object=None]]]


Examples

import center_of_mass
fetch 1c3y, finish=1, multiplex=0

com 1c3y, state=1
#Create a pseudoatom representing the 1c3y COG and store it as "1c3y_COM"
#The "1c3y_COM" object will contain 1 state only

com 1c3y, state=1, object=COG
#Create a pseudoatom representing the 1c3y COG and store it as "COG"
#The "COG" object will contain 1 state only

com 1c3y, state=1, object=COM, mass=1
#Create a pseudoatom representing the 1c3y COM and store it as "COM"
#The "COM" object will contain 1 state only

com 1c3y, object=COM, mass=1
#Create a single pseudoatom containing the COM for each state found in 1c3y and store it as "COM"
#The "COM" object will contain MULTIPLE states!
