CNT Growth Simulation Help

Using the Java Applet

Rotating Clockwise about the Origin: Drag the Java screen to the left.

Rotating Counter-Clockwise about the Origin: Drag the Java screen to the right.

Rotating Upward about the Origin: Drag the Java screen downward.

Rotating Downward about the Origin: Drag the Java screen upward.

Moving the Origin: Hold (shift) and double click the Java screen, then before releasing after the second mouse click, drag in the direction you want to move the origin. Doing this will change the location of the origin about which rotating is done. The origin initially starts at the center of mass of the nanotube.

Zoom out: Hold (shift) and drag the Java screen up with your mouse.

Zoom in: Hold (shift) and drag the Java screen down with your mouse.

Using the Jmol Menu: Hold (control) and click on the Java screen to display the Jmol menu.
