Le Chatelier's Priciple

Does adding a liquid or solid to a reaction at equilibrium affect the concentrations of the reactants or products?

No, because solids can not have a concentration due to their form and for liquids, the change in concentration is so minute, it also does not affect the overall concentrations.

Liquids and solids are not part of the equilibrium constant expression, so they will not affect the concentration of the reactants or products.

No. The activities of liquids and solid do not affect the K value of the reaction

No, solids or liquids do not affect the concentrations or therefore equilibrium. Only temperature can affect the K.
