Science Experiment: Super Starch

Question: Can a liquid be a solid?

Hypothesis: Yes it can.

Materials: Corn Starch

Today for our experiment we discussed whether a solid can be a liquid at the same time.  Most of us said yes.  To test it out, first we poured 1 cup of corn starch into a bowl and added half a cup of water.  We then took it in turns to play with the mixture.  I found out that when you felt it, it felt like a liquid, but when you tried to pick it up, it felt like a solid.  When I let it dry, it felt like extra bits of dead skin.  

Because of our experiment, I have learned that something can be both a liquid and a solid at the same time.  I look forward to the rest of our cool experiments!

Hi Murdoch!
I agree the super starch experiment
was cool. It was really hard to pick it up but when it ran threw your fingers it felt nice and gooey. Doing this experiment was soooo much fun!
I already new what would happen before we did the super starch experiment because my brother Elias showed me this experiment the night before we did it.
Your story on the experiment we did is great! Keep up the good work.


P.S: We so need to put some work on our blog before school ends!!!

I'm the kind of guy who loves to try unprecedented stuff. Right now I am constructing my hold photovoltaic panels. I'm managing it all alone without the assistance of my staff. I am using the internet as the only path to acheive this. I discovered a really amazing site that explains how to build solar panels and wind generators. The place explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I'm not sure about how precise the info given there iz. If some people over here who had experience with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the page it would be grand and I would highly treasure it, cauze I truly like [URL=]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. You people rock.
