Abstract: A relation of excess volume and density is analyzed for binary liquid mixtures. It is shown that, unlike the ideal mixture, whose density is a monotonous function of composition, extremes may appear on the density curves of mixtures with non-zero excess volumes. Conditions for the existence of extremes are derived. Some examples are also given and briefly discussed.
