### Nernst Equation

How do you distinguish what to plug in for Ecell versus Ecell°? How do you know which one is which?

### Re: Nernst Equation

Ecell is not under standard conditions whether Ecell^o is under standard conditions. It will usually tell you it is under 1 atm of pressure or 25 degrees celsius etc.
