when working with cell potentials and the nernst equation, what do we do when we're given a quantity with bars as the unit? do we convert to M?

I think you can convert to atm. Cause equilibrium can also be calculated through pressure. Someone correct me if I am wrong

I think for the nernst equation you could either use bar or atm, because they are almost the same. Also you can use both pressures and concentrations in the same equation, they don't all have to be the same. I don't know why that's the case but that's what my TA told me. Hope this helps.

i think you'll need to match the units to the rydberg value you plug in
