Crushing Non-Newtonian Fluid With a Hydraulic Press

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

The amount of discoveries that can be made out of sheer boredom is truly endless. Whether they be groundbreaking or just new to you, the experimenter, it’s always a fun time.

This might just look like some innocent playing, but the results are pretty interesting to watch. The culprit, this time, is known as non-Newtonian fluid. It’s basically a substance that acts like a solid half of the time and a liquid the rest of the time, depending what conditions it’s going up against.

In this one, the substance is put to the test to see what the seemingly physics defiant fluid will do under different conditions.

Check out the video below that reveals all of the answers and does so in quite an interesting manner. For some reason, we really want to see more!
