Caption: Walther Hermann Nernst (1864-1941), German physical chemist. Nernst was appointed to a professorship in Berlin in 1905. The same year, he proposed the third law of thermodynamics: entropy change approaches zero at a temperature of absolute zero. This work earned Nernst the 1920 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. His other work included explaining how hydrogen and chlorine explode on exposure to light. He also worked on the ionisation of compounds in water, invented an electric lamp, and developed the Nernst equation. This drawing, by Elizabeth Korn, was drawn in Berlin, Germany, and is dated 17 September 1929.
