We consider a molecule constrained to a hypersurface Σ in the configuration space R m . In order to derive an expression for the mean force acting along the constrained coordinate we decompose the molecular vector field, and single out the direction of the respective coordinate utilising the structure of affine connections. By these means we reconsider the well-known results derived by Sprik et al.  and Darve et al. ; we gain concise geometrical insight into the different contributions todoi:10.4310/cms.2005.v3.n1.a1 fatcat:kw654deeeras7fb5un3vl6ajmq
