In class, we've gone over how changes to pressure and to concentration may shift the direction of the reaction and how changing the temperature actually changes the equilibrium constant of a certain reaction. Is there possibly another way to change the value of K? Is there another parameter not discussed in class or in the PV=nRT equation?
The value of K itself will not be changed by anything except temperature. Other parameters such as pressure or concentration will cause the position of equilibrium to change but not the value of the equilibrium constant for that chemical equation for that temperature.

Changing the pressure of a system will not change the equilibrium constant k itself, but it will cause a net increase in the equilibrium concentration of the side of a reaction with less moles due to the change in concentration that occurs as a result of the change in volume.
