In the present paper we have studied the temperature dependence of electrical resistivity of simple liquid metals through the Harrison’s first principle (HFP) pseudopotential technique. The structure factor needed for liquid metals has been taken from experimental measurements [X-ray and neutron diffraction]. The results have been compared with experimental data and theoretical values of other authors. Reasonable agreement has been obtained.
