Abstract

Shear viscosity of liquid Sn–Ag, Sn–Cu and Sn–Ag–Cu eutectics from melting temperature up to 1100 K and their electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power up to 850 K have been investigated. The electrical properties of liquid Sn with additions of Fe and Ni have also been studied. It is shown that small amounts of metal admixtures affect noticeably the behavior of the physical properties of liquid Sn.
