We performed a series of simulations for a linear polymer chain in a solvent using dissipative particle dynamics to check the scaling relations for the end-to-end distance, radius of gyration and hydrodynamic radius in three dimensions. The polymer chains of up to 80 beads in explicit solvent of various quality are studied. To extract the scaling exponent ν, the data are analyzed using linear fits, correction-to-scaling forms and analytical fits to the histograms of radius of gyrationdoi:10.5488/cmp.10.4.539 fatcat:jkvocfkl6vgsfe42tcg2xpzlri
