### Units for Kc and Kp

I understand that when we calculate Kc, we omit the units and put brackets instead to indicate molar concentration. However, is it the same rule for when we calculate Kp? Do parentheses indicate gas concentration so therefore we don't need to put units like bars or atms?

Thanks

We dont include units for Kp because its a constant.

You're correct in that we don't put units, but I believe the parentheses indicate gas pressure (not concentration).

Brackets are used to denote molar concentrations, and parenthesis are used to denote partial pressure.
