Peer instruction: force fields and energy minimization

These slides show questions I used when teaching force fields (slides 1-4) and energy minimization (slides 5-8) using peer instruction. The slides are in Danish, but I hope you get the idea and there is always Google translate.  Many of the equations are discussed in Sections 1.5 and 2.1 of Molecular Modeling Basics.

I also use the Avogadro program when teaching force fields.  See for example this post.

I have made a Jmol model to illustrate energy minimization, as discussed in this post.
