The Monte Carlo method has been applied to water near a neutral planar surface. Waterwater interactions are described using the TIPS2 potential, and a novel simulation technique for obtaining better equilibrium averages is employed. At 25°C, water molecules adjacent to the surface are found to be oriented preferentially, giving rise to an inward +70 mV potential drop with respect to the wall.
