In the present communication, we have proposed a simple method using which two parameters of Kumar’s pseudopotential can be reduced to effectively single parameter. Further the reliability of our proposed method is examined by carrying out electron dispersion curves (E(k) → k), Fermi energy (EF) and density of states at Fermi energy (N(EF)) for sixteen liquid metals. In absence of any experimental or theoretical results of aforesaid properties, our results will throw some light in the determination of interactions persisting in the liquid state of transition metals.
