Caption: Johannes Diderik van der Waals (1837-1923), Dutch physicist. Van der Waals obtained his doctorate in 1873 with a paper that showed that the gas and the liquid states were in fact the same state. He won the 1910 Nobel Prize for Physics for this work. Other major work included developing several laws in thermodynamics. Van der Waals was the first to realise the need to consider molecular volumes and inter-molecular forces (now called van der Waals forces in his honour) in gases and liquids.
