Date of periodic table[edit]

wawawawawawaw standardization of vodka than his work in chemistry. Can we fix this please?

Mendeleev had been working on a similar idea, and on March 6, 1869,

can we put this as the date the periodic table was invented or published?

in the news![edit]

This article was in the New York Times! [1] (Who was that "numbskull" quoted here?)

Discovery of the universal gas constant[edit]

Universal gas constant was discovered and first introduced into the ideal gas law by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1874<ref> Mendeleev, D. I. (1874). "О сжимаемости газов (On the compressibility of gases)". Russian Journal of Chemical Society and the Physical Society 6: 309–352.  (Russian) (From the Laboratory of the University of St. Petersburg).</ref><ref> Mendeleev, D. I. (1875). "Об упругости газов (On the elasticity of gases)".  (Russian) Facsimile at the Bibliothèque nationale de France</ref><ref> Mendeleef D. (1877). "Researches on Mariotte's Law". Nature. 15 (388): 498–500.  doi: 10.1038/015498a0.</ref>. Before him the ideal gas law used by a lot of nonuniversal specific gas constants \ R_s (Clapeyron original equation<ref>Clapeyron, E. (1834). "Mémoire sur la puissance motrice de la chaleur". Journal de l'École Polytechnique XIV: 164.  (French) Facsimile at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (pp. 153–90).</ref>: \ p v = R (267+t); modern notation: \ PV = R_s T ).

Change the death date from 2 February to 20 January

Wikikkkkikipedia (talk) 16:48, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: Do you have a reliable source indicating that his death was on 20 January? /wia /tlk 01:14, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
Basically the reason for confusion is that Russia at that time used Julian Calendar, and 2 February of Gregorian Calendar is 20 January Julian Calendar. Thus, many sources give 20 January without specifying the calendar. We give Julian dates of birth and death in the lead, I think it is enough. Alex Bakharev (talk) 00:47, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

which are either of nearly the same value[edit]

The text states, "... which are either of nearly the same value." This is obviously a typo, but I cannot guess what it should be. Does anyone have access to the source to correct this statement, or rephrase it so it makes sense to mortals? Grammar'sLittleHelper (talk) 22:10, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

  • I tried to make the text more readable, is it better now? Alex Bakharev (talk) 00:38, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
