hi,

i would like to know how to interpret the results of lifetime and endtime. as i read the post on hbonds, it is still not clear with the output i have.

as seen in the second and third row the protein and lipid atoms are the same except their two different lifetime and endtimes. which one should i consider in this case.

in general:--

the endtime --- is it the actual residence time b/n those atoms?

the lifetime --- is it the duration of active hbond ?

thank you
