The temperature dependences of the magnetization and of the hyperfine field in ferromagnetic metals such as Fe or Ni are different even after transformation to constant volume. It is suggested that the effect of lattice vibrations can explain the observed explicit temperature dependence of the hyperfine field at constant volume and that the deviation of the latter from the temperature dependence of the magnetization at constant pressure is well described by considering the thermal expansion also. Some applications of this model to related problems are discussed.
