Molecular dynamics calculations on a classical model for liquid water have been carried out at mass density 1 g/cm3 and at four temperatures. The effective pair potential employed is based on a four‐charge model for each molecule and represents a modification of the prior ``BNS'' interaction. Results for molecular structure and thermodynamic properties indicate that the modification improves the fidelity of the molecular dynamics simulation. In particular, the present version leads to a density… Expand
