Why does graphite have a high melting point even though

Now melting is essentially turning a highly ordered state of molecules to a disorderly one That comes at an expense of energy In this case since the constituent molecules of graphite are held together by a strong covalent force a high amount of energy is needed to weaken that bond That explains graphite's high melting point
