The effective nuclear charge is dependent on the number of electrons present in an atom because the nuclear charge increases from bottom to top and right to left. For example, Lithium (row 2) would have a higher nuclear charge than Potassium (row 4). Another example would be Carbon (column 14) having a higher nuclear charge than Phosphorous (column 15). Hope this helps!
