- galpy.potential.toVerticalPotential(Pot, R, phi=None, t0=0.0)¶
Convert a 3D azisymmetric potential to a vertical potential at a given R.
Pot (Potential instance) – The 3D potential to convert.
R (float or Quantity) – Galactocentric radius at which to evaluate the vertical potential.
phi (float, optional) – Azimuth at which to evaluate the vertical potential. Default is None.
t0 (float, optional) – Time at which to evaluate the vertical potential. Default is 0.0.
The vertical potential at (R, z, phi, t).
