Zmatrices help in solving computational chemistry problems. They do so by making it easy to find the cartesian coordinates of each atom in a molecule. These coordinates are used to describe characteristics of their molecule. They are also used to calculate other computational chemistry problems. In this section, you will learn how to create a zmatrix and how to use it to calculate the cartesian coordinates.
