You don’t always need a big laboratory for exciting experiments... You can easily create a non-Newtonian fluid yourself. If you apply pressure, a filler-like substance appears to form. If you leave the mixture alone it reverts to a smooth watery paste.
@engineers_feed I believe we used to make this stuff in the 5th grade
@LivacoYT @engineers_feed Imagine the starch molecules from the cornflour are all tangled, apply force to the substance slowly, and they coils have time to unravel and flow, apply force quickly and they can’t unravel, and it behaves like a solid! Look up ‘oobleck’ , YouTube will explain better than me!
@engineers_feed What's the science behind this anyway? What causes it to act this way?
@engineers_feed Wet sand also behaves like that, no? When you step in it, it gets solid
@engineers_feed Ketchup is a non- Newtonian fluid. It’s a Bingham plastic. It needs a minimum shear stress applied to it before it will flow.
