In May, 1750 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.

1724

His earliest mathematical work was the Exercitationes (Mathematical Exercises), published in 1724 with the help of Goldbach.

His chief work is Hydrodynamica, published in 1738.

1896

It was not until about 170 years later, in 1896 that an Italian doctor discovered a less painful method which is still in use today.

In his 1738 book Specimen theoriae novae de mensura sortis (Exposition of a New Theory on the Measurement of Risk), Bernoulli offered a solution to the St. Petersburg paradox as the basis of the economic theory of risk aversion, risk premium, and utility.
