The pseudopotential form factors developed by Ezenwaka (2007) were used to calculate the liquid metal resistivity for Lithium Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, and Zinc. In addition, the linear coefficients parameter Ai were calculated by the use of data of Bachelet et al (1982) as well as the prescription of Pattnaik et al (1979) which eliminated the numerical instability problems. The liquid resistivity is evaluated using Simpson’s rule. The results obtained theoretically were compared with experimentally observed results of Faber (1977) and 88% good agreements were obtained within the framework of the calculations.
