Obleck

 

 

 

Today we played around with Obleck (corn starch mixed with water) and had lots of fun! The Obleck acts like a solid and a liquid at the same time! If you touch it slowly it kind of melts but if you hit it fast it stays hard. At first when we tried to make it into a block/ball it always melted in our hands and wouldn’t shape into anything. Later, however it kind of dried up a bit and therefor it was easier to make a ball out of it. Now the question is, is it a liquid? Or a solid? I think that it’s an extremely viscous liquid. I don’t think that it’s a solid because I believe that a solid should stay hard unless it begins to melt in which case it would be becoming a liquid. Obleck is a very strange substance, it feels like it’s stuck almost right in the middle between solid and liquid, but in the end I see it as more of a liquid than a solid
