How does melting point decrease with increase in pressure for solid- liquid equillibrium .

Pls explain using Le chattlier principle

Expert Answer:

According to Le-Chatelier's principle when changes are applied at equilibrium, then it will shift into the direction where the effect of changes can be minimised. When Pressure increases then the structure of solid becomes denser and to minimise this effect, solid melts. So Melting point of solid decreases.
