Abstract: The stabilized jellium model is the simplest model which yields realistic results for the physical properties of simple metals. For the surface properties, its single input is the valence-electron density, which is described by the density parameter rs. We remark that the surface energy and the work function as a function of rs, within that model, are reasonably approximated by power laws and compare that behaviour with similar descriptions found in the literature and with experiment. We also present a simple relationship between the surface energy and the bulk modulus, which is well fitted by the power of the density parameter (when the effective valence is taken to be z*=1). Another simple relationship between the work function and the bulk modulus is shown.
