The cornstarch suspension, however, behaves differently! It's viscosity changes with force applied. Make some of your own cornstarch goo at home and try it.
This lab was part of an introduction to the concepts of energy; its forms and its effects on matter. We applied heat energy to the honey when we microwaved it, and we applied kinetic energy to the cornstarch suspension when we smashed, slapped, and tried to pick it up.
