Densities and their temperature coefficients of liquid Cr-Fe, Fe-Ni, and Cr-Ni binary alloys have been measured containerless using the technique of electromagnetic levitation. Data have been obtained in a wide temperature range including the supercooled region. The density measurements indicate that these binary systems have a small and positive excess volume, whereas the excess free energies are negative. The temperature coefficients of these alloys can be estimated from those of the pure components. Hence, possible contributions from the temperature dependence of the excess volume can be ignored to calculate the temperature coefficient of density.
