The electrical and thermal resistivities of liquid gallium are calculated over a range of temperatures above the melting point using the solutions of the Boltzmann equation. The experimental x-ray structure factor of Waseda and the form factor derived using the Heine-Abarenkov model potential are used in these calculations. The ratio of the electrical and thermal conductivities is calculated and compared to experimental values and to the theoretical Lorenz number.
