(: The Slime :)
(science experiment 2)
We use plastic glasses, a spoon, an ultraviolet light and a graduated cylinder.
We use a lot of substances, like borax, polyvinyl alcohol, glowing coloring substances ( eosin, fluorescein, methylene blue ) and a soft drink with quinina .
We mix borax, polyvinyl alcohol and glowing substances ( eosin, fluoroscein, methylene blue and quinina ).
How does it work?
The contact of borax and polyvinyl alcohol produces a sticky and slimy substance. It glows in front of ultraviolet light.
The slime is a secondary source of light; it diffuses the ultraviolet light, it doesn't produce any.
The Slime isn't solid ; it has characteristics of a liquid :
Its surface is always flat and horizontal,
it takes the shape of its container
you can't hold it with your fingers.
