Capital in general is also referred to in _Capital_:

In the drafts for what was published as Volume 3 of  _Capital_
Marx refers to the  scope of  his work  in _Capital_ as
concerning  the "general nature of capital" ("allgemeine Natur
des Kapitals") .  See first paragraph of  Vol. 3, Ch. 6, Section 2.

Re "innerer Durchschnitt ....":  we could locate the English translation
quicckly if you could give us the chapter, section, and paragraph
numbers from _Capital_.

In solidarity, Jerry
