The density and surface tension of liquid Fe-Mn alloys were determined by using the sessile drop method at 1823 K (1550 °C). The density of liquid Fe-Mn alloys decreased with increasing Mn content. When the molar volume was plotted with respect to the mole fraction of Mn, a linear relationship was obtained. Consequently, it was found that there is no excess volume in liquid Fe-Mn alloy. The surface tension of liquid Fe-Mn alloys was found to decrease with increasing Mn content. The current experimental data were higher than the reported results but close to the calculated results using Butler's equation.
