Regular Solution model have been used to describe thermodynamic properties, transport properties and structural properties. The interaction energy is temperature dependent and played an important role to explain the properties of Bi-In liquid alloy at different temperatures. The theoretical values of interchange energy at different temperatures are obtained by best fit parameter approximation with the help of experimental values at 900K. The properties have been studied with the help of computed theoretical interchange energy at different temperatures as all properties of our study in this model is dependent on it. The properties are analyzed on theoretical basis. Comparison of theoretical and experimental values at 900K shows that they are in good agreement.
