Self-diffusion in liquids is not well understood because of the lack of a clear microscopic knowledge on liquids. Here, on basis of an atomic model for liquids that we concluded from crystal melting, possible atomic details of self-diffusion in liquid metals are proposed. Accordingly, the coefficient of self-diffusion is derived for liquid elements, in reasonable agreement with experimental data.
