conditional potential (formal potential)

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.C01240
Conditional (formal) potential, \(E^{0'}\), is related to the @P04783@, \(E_{\mathrm{cell}}\), by an equation analogous to that relating \(E_{\mathrm{cell}}\) to the standard potential \(E_{0}\), with the activity, \(a_{i}\), replaced by any composition @V06600@, \(c_{i}\) (to be indicated by a subscript). For example: \[E_{\mathrm{cell}}=E_{\text{c}}^{0'}- \frac{R\ T}{n\ F}\ \sum _{\begin{array}{c} i \end{array}}\nu _{i}\ \ln c_{i}\]
