This Non-Newtonian Fluid Lets You “Walk on Water”
Non-Newtonian fluids are solid if you apply a sudden force and liquid if you apply a steady, slow force. People took that property and made a substance that lets you “walk on water”. The mixture is two parts cornstarch to one part water and demonstrates the properties of non-Newtonian fluids.
In the mix, there are tiny cornstarch particles evenly distributed. When a steady slow force is applied, the particles have time to move out of the way. So the object slides through, as it would in a liquid. When a sudden force is applied, the particles don’t have time to move out of the way. So the object is stopped, as it would be on solid surface.
What can you do on a non-Newtonian fluid pool? Jump. Bike. Flip. Whatever you do, just keep applying high force, or you’ll sink right in!Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
