Change in Equilibrium for Aqueous Solutions

Hi! In equilibrium, if there is compression the reaction will favor the side which has the least moles of gas. Does this also apply to aqueous solutions? If not, how do changes in pressure affect changes in equilibrium for aqueous solutions?

I think since Kp only applies to gaseous equilibria, changes in pressure would not cause changes in aqueous equilibria.

Hey,
Compression will only affect gaseous reactions. Aqueous/liquids and solids in the reaction cannot be compressed, so there would be no change in the equilibrium reaction with molecules in those phases.
