Consider the liquid-gas coexistence curve. Show that C[tex]_{(g)}[/tex] − C[tex]_{(l)}[/tex] = T([tex]\stackrel{d}{dT}[/tex] [tex]\Delta[/tex][tex]_{(vap)}[/tex]S) for T, P along the coexistence curve. Now use the fact that

[tex]\Delta[/tex](vap)S = [tex]\Delta[/tex](vap)H/T along the coexistence curve, and the fact that [tex]\Delta[/tex](vap)H is positive and decreases with increasing T, to show that C(g) < C(l) . Note that this inequality applies only at Tvap.
