Abstract:Compared with other fundamental physical properties of liquid metals, such as surface tension and viscosity, density is more amenable to accurate measurement. Accurate data are highly desirable because density is a variable in the evaluation of these other properties. Density measurements also provide useful. information on the properties of liquid metals, e.g. volume changes. at the melting point and those associated with alloying. However, attempts to establish correlations with the thermodynamic properties of liquid metals or to gain insight into the nature of the liquid state have at best been successful in a very general way. These aspects of density measurement and the influence of possible atomic interactions and atomic packing in the liquid state are considered as part of this review
