    For one of the snow days in my elementary school we had to make oobleck (we just read that Dr. Seuss book) and write a paragraph about whether we think it is a solid or a liquid (we had "blizzard bags" for work at home in case of snow days).
    I remember being so done with everything that I debated saying it was a gas.
    8 year old me was on another level

      @Apteral Anomaly You observed it was a liquid, and made the observation that it would most likely freeze..sounds like a bad teacher to me.

      In my school, my teacher had kids split into groups with a tub of the stuff and debate how to land on a theoretical planet made of it, based only on our observations interacting with it, then draw a picture of our method. I insisted on a ship with a freeze gun, because the teacher took the tub out of the refrigerator (and also logically things with liquid in them tend to freeze). She told me I hadn't followed the directions, insisting that I couldn't have known Oobleck would freeze by observing it in the moment.

    I always wondered if you could use this liquid as a speed regulator for vehicles going down hill.
    The wheel could be connected to a paddle in a chamber filled with this liquid.
    It would slowly slip, allowing for a slow and controlled descent.

    this is an anxiety inducing substance for me tbh
    like this is what i imagine people who are claustrophobic feel like
    that feeling of being trapped
    the harder you push and try to escape the harder it gets to get out, but if you slow down it liquifies around you. but you know that as soon as you try to move again it will trap you.

    I've done this with my bare hands before. Not even making it up, it's actually not that hard, especially if you start with a lot and gradually squeeze water out. You may lose a lot of cornstarch in the process but in the end you have a little bit of the powdery stuff left.

  • Dream Escapes
    Dream Escapes 5 months ago +695

    Oobleck is non-newtonian because the starch molecules initially entangle when a stress is applied, sticking together like a solid, then slowly untangle and relax back to liquid state. The kicker is every liquid is non-newtonian on the right time scale.
    Liquid molecules are weakly attracted/stuck to each other and can't instantly break that attraction when a stress is applied, so they momentarily behave like a solid until the attraction is broken and the molecules can freely move. That's why water is momentarily as hard as concrete when hit from a high enough height. The surface tension comes from water molecules weakly attracted to each other, and if hit quickly enough the tension won't break in time and the water will briefly feel like a solid before relaxing back to liquid state.

      @Yemmie Capricornus How the object of interest interacts with other objects only depends on its relative motion to the other objects. So if you have liquid flowing down at a constant 10 mph, some canon also traveling down at 10 mph, and that canon launches a ball down at 20 mph, the ball only impacts the water at 10 mph. It’s all based on relative motion, which is explained better in this video:

      @Dream Escapes that's so cool, but that also makes me wonder... if we were to launch something that's launching something that's launching something else... (i'm about to go on a rabbit hole adventure now lol)

      @Aiden Aune oobleck is a truer non-newtonian fluid because nonlinearity in shear rate occurs not only during initial applied shear stress, but also a phase separation when knocked out of single phase stability by a large enough stress (starch falls out of solution and entangles as a solid). In either scenario, entanglement of starch molecules causes its temporary rigidity.
      Because its so hard to measure for most pure fluids, that initial viscosity spike is ignored for practical applications and fluids like water are approximated as newtonian. I’m just highlighting that its an approximation and that linearity doesn’t exist at all time scales (technically non-newtonian).

      @Depresso Espresso Because of glass’s interesting amorphous structure, it is sometimes not considered a solid but a “liquid” with “infinite” viscosity. The crack can propagate long before the glass molecules can shear out of the way (because they will never shear).

    Oobleck and I aren't so different. I also get harder when I'm treated roughly or violently

    I wonder if it's possible to make a container for Oobleck that is flexible and vibrates at just the right frequency to create an impenetrable wall

    What measurements did you use for the oobleck?

    Oh my gosh..😀 my friend's Mom made this for us to play with when I was a little kid. I have tried,many times to describe this to people throughout my life..and nobody knew what it was called or even what I was talking about 🤣
    I'm so glad I came across this video..😉

    I guess you could say that it hardens in response to physical trauma

    Yoooo, nostalgia to doing this in my science class - oh. Well, I didn’t do that last part.

    scientists : "are you solid or liquid?"
