Does pressure affect the equilibrium constant?

Values of partial pressure for products and reactants affect K in the same way that concentrations do. That's why K has two forms Kc and Kp. Kc is when using concentrations and Kp is when using Partial Pressures. It's just the ratio of Partial Pressures of the Products/Partial Pressures of the Reactants with their respective exponents if needed.
