Absolute techniques have been used to determine, to a high degree of accuracy, the density and viscosity of liquid antimony. The data obtained are in reasonable agreement with previous work. Densities were measured up to about 115° above the melting point and varied linearly with temperature according to the equation p = 6.902-6.486 × 10-4t wheret is in °. Viscosities were measured up to only 70° above the melting point and about 7° below on the supercooled liquid. The viscosity results were fitted to the Andrade equation ŋν1/3 =A exp C/νT whereA and C are constants whose values were determined as 1.608 × 10-3 and 221.4, respectively.
