I am wondering about the enthalpies of solids and liquids near the melting temperature. I am familiar with free energy, and I know that above Tm, free energy of the solid becomes higher than liquid. However, we have been asked to think about the same question for enthalpy and draw a schematic. I was thinking that the enthalpy term should be related to intermolecular forces, so that it will always be higher for solids. Can anyone help me out with this? I don't know if it is a very simple question, but I am just a beginner. Thank you!
