This is defined by the equation: $U^{\ddagger } = -R\ T\ (\frac{\partial (\ln I_{0})}{\partial T^{-1}})_{p,c_{j},...}$ where $$I_{0}$$ is the @[email protected] At any @[email protected] $$\eta$$ it is defined by the equation: $U^{\ddagger }\left(\eta \right) = -R\ (\frac{\partial (\ln (|I|))}{\partial T^{-1}})_{p,\eta ,c_{j},...}$ where $$I$$ is the current passing from the electrode into the electrolyte.
