Did you learn about the states of matter in science class?Solid, liquid, and gas are the original three.There are two lesser known states.There is an item that breaks the mold.
It would be a colloid.The material is derived from collagen.Jello is made by suspending the solid materials in sugar water.Mr. Cloe is a science teacher at the high school.
We were taught that a solid can hold its shape and a liquid can fit in a container.The shape of the container is taken when it is heated.It will hold it’s shape when cooled.Where does that leave it?
jello is considered to be a colloid because it is suspended in the water.It behaves like a liquid because of the large spaces between the particles.As it warmed to room temperature, it would flow as a liquid.
This was a great read that helped me with my work and helped my brain grow.
