Molecular dynamics simulations are used to study the relative stability of graphene and carbon nanotubes. The formulation of the Tersoff bond-order potential was used to investigate the energetic stabilities and thermodynamics properties through a range of temperature. The structural properties were studied using the radial distribution effects functions. The thermodynamics effects were studied using the energy-temperature plots. Similarities and differences in graphene and carbon nanotubes are discussed.
