pressure change and the effect on K

Postby Julianne Seog 3K » Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:40 am

In the course reader, it said that K does not change even if the pressure changes. Why is this true? Wouldnt changing pressure (for example decreasing the volume) affect the concentration and therefore the equilibrium constant?

There is no inherent relationship between pressure and concentration so changing one doesnt change the other. Also, pressure doesn't inherently change volume, and a change in volume still doesn't change K

How does temperature affect K?
