Adding an inert gas will increase the pressure of a system. However, it does NOT affect the equilibrium of a reaction because there is no change in concentration which means Q does not change. Adding an inert gas will not shift a reaction towards products or reactants.
Adding an inert gas will not have effect on the system because the inert gas does not participate in the actual chemical reaction and does not change the partial pressure or the volume(therefore concentration) of the reactants and products.
Increasing the pressure of a system with an inert gas does not affect the equilibrium constant. Some examples of inert gases are Helium (He), Argon (Ar), Neon (Ne), Krypton (Kr), and Xenon (Xe).
Adding an inert gas will change the pressure of the system (increase it), but will not affect the K and Q values (does not change the equilibrium concentration), and will not have an effect on the overall reaction.
