Expert Answer:

Effective nuclear charge Zeff = Nuclear charge (Z) - Screening constant (S)
For Lithium (Li)
screening constant is 1.7 
nuclear charge is 3
Effective nuclear charge = 3- 1.7
For Sodium (Na) 
screening effect constant is 8.8
nuclear charge is 11
Effective nuclear charge = 11 - 8.8 
For Potassium (K)
screening effect constant is 16.8
Nuclear charge is 19
Effective nuclear charge = 19 - 16.8
                                    = 2.2
Also for Rubidium and Caesium, the effective nuclear charge is 2.2
It is observed that in a group the effective nuclear charge remains the same.
So the effective nuclear charge for lithium is smaller as compared to sodium and potassium.
