Partial pressure can be measure in both bars and atm. I believe for this class, we will assume 1 bar = 1 atm, but you can also convert if necessary.

I believe solids and liquids are not included when calculating K values because their concentrations don't change significantly over the course of a reaction. Can anyone confirm this? I'm not exactly sure if this is the right explanation.

Kc notation is used when the reactants and products of a homogeneous reaction are in the aqueous phase, while partial pressure notation is used when the reactants and products of a homogeneous reaction are in the gas phase.
Kc = use brackets
Kp = use parentheses
