  • 1837 Birth of Johannes Diderik van der Vaals, winner of the 1910 Nobel Prize and known for the equation now named for him, which describes the behaviour of gases
  • 1887 Birth of Henry Moseley, whose measurements of the x-ray spectra of various elements put the empirical concept of the atomic number on a firm basis in physics
