The volume of certain saturated solution is greater than the sum of the volumes of the water and salt from which it is made. On increasing pressure solubility of this salt
(c) Remains unaffected
(d) Can't be predicted
The solution says
Density of product < Density of reactant [mass of reactant = mass of product] So on increasing pressure equilibrium shift toward higher density solid or liquid.
According to Le Chatelier's Principle, shouldn't equilibrium be shifted towards the side of low density when pressure is increased?
Is my interpretation of the Principle wrong or is the solution of the answer wrong?
