### Re: Bitter distances:

That was too careless of me.

How good is that?

### Re: Bitter distances:

Thanks.

Now, please tell me why coordinates are not important?

### Re: Bitter distances:

EVW has a different solution that she will show when she posts. It seems to be more logical then what we three did.

### Re: Bitter distances:

Sure.

I do not think that there is any theoretical way to get the co-ordinates as opposed to experimental.
