The electrical transport properties viz. the electrical resistivity (ρ), the thermoelectric power (TEP) and thermal conductivity (σ) of three K-based alkali liquid binary alloys viz. K1-XNaX, K1-XRbX and K1-XCsX were calculated from the pseudopotential form factors and Percus-Yevic (PY) hard sphere structure factors of Ashcroft and Langreth. The well recognized empty core model (EMC) pseudopotential of Ashcroft is used for the first time with seven local field correction functions due to Hartree (H), Hubbard-Sham (HS), Vashishta-Singwi (VS), Taylor (T), Ichimaru-Utsumi (IU), Farid et al. (F) and Sarkar et al. (S) in the present computation and found suitable for such study. It is conclude that, the comparison of present and experimental findings is highly encouraging.
