4He and 3He were numerically studied in the vicinity of their respective liquid-vapor critical points. Both path-integral molecular dynamics and quantum virial expressions were applied. It was found that an effective classical potential that properly describes the two-particle radial distribution function exhibits a strong temperature dependence near the critical temperature.
