Abstract

A simple model has been considered to obtain the reversible temperature dependence of the static structure factors S(q) for liquid metals. The measured values of S(q) near the melting point have been utilised to obtain the same at elevated temperatures for Na, K, Mg, Zn, Al and Pb. The notion of Debye temperature in liquid metals has been discussed. The principal peak heights of S(q) computed at the melting temperature have also been discussed in the light of Verlet's freezing rule. The electrical resistivity and thermo-electric power of these metals have been computed as a function of temperature. The success and failure of the Ziman formula have been critically assessed.
