Year 10 physics make a non-newtonian fluid

A non-newtonian fluid is similar to the slime encountered in Dr. Suess's "Bartholomew and the Oobleck", hence the name.

  • Physic 1
  • Physic 2
  • Physic 5
  • Physic 6
  • Physic 7

A non-newtonian fluid is a liquid that changes to a solid, as you apply more pressure. 

IGCSE physics students study fluids that do not change under pressure, and Oobleck is a perfect example of where the laws of physics they study, do not apply. 

Studying physics is often related to testing the limits of where the laws of nature change, as a better way of understanding when and how to apply the laws that they are learning.

Special thanks to custodial for their help, after the experiment!
