I have gone through the documentation quite rigorously. But it is such an elementary operation that I am performing. Can you please tell me the errror I am making cause its just 3 commands?

Yours Sincerely

you have to study the documentation more carefully. if LAMMPS issues
an "illegal variable command" error, then you command is incorrect.
also, you don't have to do such a complex computation, because all
properties available for thermo_style custom are also available to
equal style variables.
