 The (extended) lowest order constrained variational ((E) LOCV) method was used to calculate the ground state energy of liquid helium 3 (3He) droplets at zero temperature. Different types of density distribution profiles, such as the Gaussian, the Quasi-Gaussian and the Woods-Saxon were used. It was shown that at least, on average, near 20 3He atoms are needed to get the bound state for 3He liquid droplet. Depending on the choice of the density profiles and the atomic radius of 3He, the above estimate can increase to 300. Our calculated ground state energy and the number of atoms in liquid 3He droplet were compared with those of Variational Monte Carlo (VMC) method, Diffusion Monte Carlo (DMC) method and Density Functional Theory (DFT), for which a reasonable agreement was found.
