The Bridgman equation for thermal conductivity of liquids is examined and a relation between sonic velocity and latent heat of vaporization is given. A correlation based on the hole theory of liquids is presented. This correlation predicts thermal conductivity in the temperature range of $-20 ^\circ C to +80^\circ C$. for sixteen liquids, and at $20^\circ C$. for fifty liquids with an average absolute deviation of 9.5 and 5%, respectively. The correlation is also applied to liquid metals.
