# Entropy and enthalpy at the melting point of benzene

For the melting of Benzene, since it is melting, it feels intuitive to think that the change in entropy will be positive (more disorder) and enthalpy will be positive (exothermic). However, when I look in my textbook, it says that the sign for delta S will be negative. Why is this? Wouldn't any process of melting from solid to liquid have a positive change in entropy? Here is the original question: "The normal melting point of benzene, C6 H6 , is 5.5°C. For the process of melting, what is the sign of each of the following? (a) ∆H°, (b) ∆S°"
