Sometimes adding or taking away water has an effect on the shift of the reaction and sometimes is doesn't because it is considered a liquid. How do you know when that occurs/ when is water considered a medium or part of the reaction affected? This was on the modules and homework problems.
If the solution is in water (aka aqueous), then adding/taking away water doesn't affect it since water is technically on both sides of the reaction. Water will affect the reaction when it is in a gas phase, or is not present as the solvent. Also, make sure you check whether pressure or volume are changing and how that may affect the reaction.
