"Affect" is a verb - to affect : "Will the new rules affect you?" It's usually pronounced 'uhfect'. "Effect is a noun - to have an effect : "Will the new rules have an effect on you?' It's usually pronounced 'ifect'. NB There is also a verb "to effect", but it's quite formal, and not used in everyday contexts.
