For further explanation:
E(cell) = electrical potential of the cell
E(cell) = electrical potential of the cell under standard conditions
R = universal gas constant
T = temperature in kelvin
n = the number of electrons transferred in the reaction (from balanced equation)
F = Faraday’s constant (96,500 C/mol), and
Q = the reaction quotient of the cell reaction

This video does a great job of explaining how the Nernst equation works intuitively: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGFYS7PdIzA
