## real potential of a species in a phase

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.R05192
Defined for species B in phase β as $\alpha _{\text{B}}^{\beta } = \mu _{\text{B}}^{\beta }\,-\,z_{\text{B}}\ F\ \psi ^{\beta }$ where $$\mu _{\text{B}}^{\beta }$$ is the @[email protected] of species B in phase β, $$z_{\text{B}}$$ is the @[email protected] of species B, $$F$$ is the @[email protected], and $$\psi ^{\beta }$$ is the @[email protected] of phase β. Since $$\psi ^{\beta }$$ is zero when the charge on the phase β is zero, the real potential may be regarded as the value of the @[email protected] of the uncharged phase.
