 Dear pwscf users
      I want to optimize the lattice constant of ZnO use VC-relax,should I set the X-Iforce,Y-iforce,Z-iforce to  0 or 1 ? In my opinion ,I think they should be set to 0.
does it right ? besides ,I want to know the reliability of this method .What's the criterion to know whether the derived lattice constant (a ,c/a)is right or not ?
Any useful advice will be appreciated .
