On February 8, January 29according to the then valid Julian calendarSwiss mathematician and physicist Daniel Bernoulli was born.

Being one of the many prominent mathematicians in the Bernoulli familyDaniel Bernoulli is particularly remembered for his applications of mathematics to mechanicsespecially fluid mechanicsand for his pioneering work in probability and statistics. His name is commemorated in the Bernoulli principlea particular example of the conservation of energywhich describes the mathematics of the mechanism underlying the operation of two important technologies of the 20th century: Daniel Bernoulli was born in Groningen, in the Netherlands, into a family of distinguished mathematicians, which originally came from Antwerp, at that time in the Spanish Netherlands, but emigrated to escape the Spanish persecution of the Huguenots.

Around schooling age, his father, Johann, encouraged him to study business, there being poor rewards awaiting a mathematician. However, Daniel refused, because he wanted to study mathematics. His father then asked him to study in medicine, and Daniel agreed under the condition that his father would hydrovynamica him mathematics privately, which they continued for some time. This Daniel did spending time studying medicine at Heidelberg in and Strasbourg in He returned to Basel in to complete his doctorate in medicine with a dissertation on the mechanics of breathing in Daniel wanted to embark on an academic gernoulli like his father so he applied for two chairs at Basel.


Unfortunately the final decision for both positions was decided by a drawing caniel lots, and both times Daniel failed to win this game of chance. Daniel then decided to continue his studies with practical medicine in Padua.

On his way he got bernoullk in Venice due to illness and by that time in he was able to publish his earliest mathematical work, the Exercitationes danil Mathematicae Mathematical Exerciseswith the help of Russian mathematician Christian Goldbach. The first part described the game of faro and is of little importance other than showing that Daniel was learning about probability at this time. Having attained academic fame with his ExercitationesDaniel Bernoulli was invited to take up the chair of mathematics at St Petersburg.

His brother Nicolaus II Bernoulli was also offered a chair of mathematics at Hydrodynaamica Petersburg so in late the two brothers travelled to St Petersburg.

Daniel was left, greatly saddened hernoulli the loss of his brother and also very unhappy with the harsh climate. Together Bernoulli and Euler tried to discover more about the flow of fluids. In particular, they wanted to know about the relationship between the speed at which blood flows and its pressure.

Daniel Bernoulli showed that the movements of strings of musical instruments are composed of an infinite number of harmonic vibrations all superimposed on the string.

Another important work produced while in St Petersburg was one on probability and political economy. He then assigns probabilities to the various means that a person hydrodynajica to make money and deduces an expectation of increase in moral expectation. Daniel applied some of his deductions to insurance. Daniel also discussed pumps and other machines to raise water. He also established the basis for the kinetic theory of gases and heat by demonstrating that dwniel impact of molecules on a surface would explain pressure and that, assuming the constant, random motion of molecules, pressure and motion increase with temperature.

About his father Johann Bernoulli published Hydraulica; this attempt by Johann to obtain priority for himself was another instance of his antagonism toward his son. Daniel Bernoulli returned to the University of Basel, where he first held the chair of medicine, but botany lectures were not what Daniel wanted and things became better for him in when he was able to exchange these for physiology lectures.

Inhowever, he was appointed to dqniel chair of physics and taught physics at Basel for 26 years until In May, he hydeodynamica elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Between and Bernoulli won or shared 10 Grand prizes of the Paris Academy of Sciences, for topics in astronomy and nautical topics, a feat equaled by only one other person, his friend and rival Leonhard Euler.

His last work involved the application of probability theory to various practical matters, such as inoculation and relative proportion of male and female births.
