An effective pair potential \phi (r) for liquid alkali metals close totheir melting points is extracted from an experimental structure factor using the inverse method based on the variational modified hypernetted-chain integral equation theory of liquids (VMHNC). The first order pair potential according to the procedure suggested by de Angelis and March is also presented for comparison. It has been found that the inverted pair potentials of liquid alkali metals scale well.
