The liquid state of matter is of great practical importance. The arrangement of atoms in a liquid is more disordered than in a crystal, and can be studied by the scattering of X-rays. This disordered arrangement is described statistically by the pair correlation function g(r), which gives the relative probability of an atom having a neighbour at a distance r.
