Document Type : Research Paper


University of Kashan


In this paper we introduce a novel methodology to transmit the origin to the center of a polygon in a molecule structure such that the special axis be perpendicular to the plane containing the polygon. The
mathematical calculation are described completely and the algorithm will be showed as a computer program.
