Bridgman formula for the thermal conductivity of atomic and molecular liquids

According to the Bridgman model, there is a direct relationship between the thermal conductivity coefficient and the sound velocity of dense liquids.
The coefficient of proportionality is approximately one for monatomic liquids and generally rises with increasing molecular complexity.
