18 июля родился голландский физик Хендрик Лоренц

Every school student knows his force. Lorentz force is the force acting on a charge in the magnetic field. There is also the Lorentz-Lorenz formula – a relation of the refractive index of a substance to its density. Independently of Hendrik Lorentz, it was discovered by the Danish physicist Ludvig Lorenz and this is a curious case from the scientific point of view and the theory of probability in this case.
