```3. And about converting time steps to seconds?
```
```
t = sqrt(m*a^2/e) where m, a, e, t are mass, length, energy and
time units, respectively.
```
```
Just in case:

- m here means the base mass. All particle masses are given in
multiples of m; if you do not specify any masses, then the mass of a
particle is equal to m. - a is also the base length unit. In case
your LJ-definition has parameter sigma=1, then a corresponds to the
position where the potential is zero. Alternatively, you can say that
a=pow(2,-1/6)* the minimum of the LJ potential. - same for e: if your
LJ-epsilon=1, then e is the depth of the minimum of the LJ potential

...and now let's put this into the UG!

A reference to e.g. Frenkel/Smit should be enough.
