Non-Newtonian Fluid

What is Non-Newtonian fluid?
A non-Newtonian fluid is a fluid whose viscosity is variable based on applied stress or force. The most common everyday example of a non-Newtonian fluid is cornstarch dissolved in water. Behavior of Newtonian fluids like water can be described exclusively by temperature and pressure. However, the physical behavior of non-Newtonian fluid depends on the forces acting on it from second to second.

Here are some pictures of me making a Non-Newtonian Fluid.
