Appropriate determination of the bin size used for sampling continuum-based properties in small systems consisting of countable particles is considered as a critical issue. In this study, we examine the effective parameters on the sampling of mean flow velocity in molecular dynamics simulations. Then, on the basis of the findings, we propose an optimal range of the bin size that retains the statistical and spatial accuracy of the sampled mean velocity throughout the flow field.
