Dear all,

I want to add water box to my studied protein by VMD solvate plugin. I
noticed that the generated water box by VMD is based on a smaller
water box pdb file located in
${VMD_path}/lib/vmd/plugins/noarch/tcl/solvate1.2/wat.pdb. Does anybody know
the the size of this wat.pdb and the desity of this water box?
Why the water number is 9261 and why the solvate plugin starts from this
water box?

Any clue is appreciated.
