A molecular model for ice nucleation and growth, attachment 2The central field empirical pair potential model is applied to studying the effects of kinks, ledges, and vacancies on the absorption of water molecules from the vapor. Molecular dynamics simulations indicate that cluster and/or surface modes play a primary role in the absorption process, the flexibility of the hydrogen bond serves to decrease the energy required for structural interconversion, and the rapid distribution of added energy in a hydrogen bonded system lead to aggregate stability which greatly exceeds that predicted by static energy calculations.
