A term formerly employed to denote the capacity of a set in a Euclidean space $ \mathbf R ^ {n} $,
obtained by the method of classical potential theory with the aid of the Newton potential for $ n \geq 3 $,
or the logarithmic potential for $ n = 2 $,
as distinct from the analytic capacity or capacities obtainable using other types of potentials.
