    or jelly.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Its a solid
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    oh vodka jelly rocks! especially lime flavour :D

    it's a solid because it doesn't flow like a liquid does :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Solid ... rigid shape and constant volume ... the forces between molecules far outweigh the thermal energy held by the molecules, and so the molecules form a rigid lattice (in which they vibrate).

    Liquid ... constant volume (over as short term, but eventually evaporation occurs) but takes on the shape of it's container ... The thermal energy possessed by the molecules is more significant, but still not enough to allow them to completely overcome the forces between them. As a result, the molecules are free to move within the liquid, but only exceptionally fast molecules can escape it.

    You decide. :p

    surly, its jello

    and its a solid. while a liquid's volume is consistant, its shape is not. a solids shape is always a certian shape, until physically changed. therefore, jello is a solid

    but wen its not cold it does :p yes ok it isnt jelly then but :p anyways.

    Doesn't it come under the "gel" classification?
    Or maybe an emulsion.

    Or a wobbly solid.
    Or even a half-arsed liquid.

    hmm....

    :D

    That's to do with a molecular reaction involving the heat :cool:

    Glass is a liquid.
    It just flows very

    very

    slowly

    but it doesn't keep a constant shape... it wobbles!

    LOLOLOLOL:lol: it's only 20 minutes until lunchtime ;) (that's midnight for everyone else :P

    a new thought: Jam is kinda semi liquid because it plops and runs all over the place :) more liquidy than jelly anyways

    It's a colloid, isn't it?

    It's a solquid. :p

    I asked Jeeves...

    The only time he's ever been useful.

    But a good answer nonetheless.

    Glass being a liquid is an urban myth. A paper was translated wrongly by some student, and everyone caught onto it and believed that glass was a liquid.

    It's not hot, it's just at a higher temperature than it's surroundings :p

    Stick your hand in some fire. I think you'll find it's pretty hot :p

    It's still not hot - it just has a higher temperature than my hand :p
