       gmx  gyrate  computes the radius of gyration of a molecule and the radii of gyration about
       the x-, y- and z-axes, as a function of time. The atoms are explicitly mass weighted.

       The axis components  corresponds  to  the  mass-weighted  root-mean-square  of  the  radii
       components orthogonal to each axis, for example:

       Rg(x) = sqrt((sum_i m_i (R_i(y)^2 + R_i(z)^2))/(sum_i m_i)).

       With  the -nmol option the radius of gyration will be calculated for multiple molecules by
       splitting the analysis group in equally sized parts.

       With the option -nz 2D radii of gyration in the x-y plane of slices along the  z-axis  are
