sedimentation field strength
The potential difference \(E_{\mathrm{sed}}\) per unit length in a @S05534@ or centrifugation cell. As the contributions of the interfacial potential differences at the electrodes are not included in \(E_{\mathrm{sed}}\) this quantity, although theoretically important, is not accessible to measurement.
