    • Abstract


      Hard sphere diameters of liquid alkali metal alloys (Na-Cs and K-Rb) are calculated at 373 K ensuring the minimum Helmholtz free energy of the system. These diameters are then used to fix the packing density of the alloy. On alloying, the hard sphere diameters of Na in Na-Cs and K in K-Rb alloys expand whereas those of Cs and Rb contract.
