Fascinating Slime Science Facts
Dive into the fascinating world of slime science. Discover intriguing facts about the chemistry, physics, and sensory properties of slime.
Slime is a polymer, a substance made up of long chains of molecules. Its unique properties make it both a liquid and a solid, allowing it to flow like a liquid while maintaining its shape like a solid.
Slime is a non-Newtonian fluid, which means its viscosity (thickness) changes with the force applied. Squeeze it slowly, and it flows like a liquid; apply pressure quickly, and it behaves like a solid.
Borax, Water, and Glue Reaction
Many slime recipes involve mixing white glue with a borax solution. The borax reacts with the glue’s polyvinyl acetate molecules, creating cross-links that turn the liquid glue into a stretchy, semi-solid slime.
Some slimes change color with temperature variations due to the presence of thermochromic pigments. This phenomenon is a fun example of thermochromism in materials.
