Since the spelling of Van der Waals's name is becoming a real issue,
I'll explain the origin of the capital or non-capital V.
Since he was Dutch (yes, we do produce great chemists), his name is
spelled" Johannes Diederik van der Waals", so no capital for the v.
When you just quote the last name, it is "Van der Waals", capital V.
So when you use his last name for the params, the official Dutch way
of spelling would be with a capital V.
Not that it is realy important....
