This is a viscoelastic fluid. It's the elastic component that pulls it back into the cup, not the viscous component.

SSS = Super Shady Stuff?

5

u/OgreSpider 3d ago

Sub surface scattering! If you hold your hand up to a light, there is a sort of orangey glow at the edges of it. It's not totally transparent, but some light gets through. The effect where light hits your dermis layers and scatters sideways, so the rays don't go straight through, creates that edge glow. SSS is one of the harder things about human flesh to make look realistic in 3d.

u/crowleytoo 3d ago

i have a degree in video game programming so i have a lot of experience with 3D simulation and a few things give this one away. first, the finger tips are a little too matte and fuzzy, usually stemming from actual fingerprints. second the shadows on the palm of the hand are a little too diffused with a lot of light complexity, and third the shadow on the wall behind the camera is so subtle yet still there where a 3D artist would usually either go for a full background with full shadows to show off that cool slime's silhouette or no background at all.

8

u/the123king-reddit 3d ago

Yeh, that's a non-newtonian fluid. But Oobleck (cornstarch and water) is very viscous. Whatever is in that glass isn't as viscous.

On the subject of applications. Would it be any use as the fluid used to inflate tyres, or do tyres require the fluid inside to be compressable? I guess the momentum of fluid spinning in a moving tyre would be quite undesirable as well.

Maybe useful in things like those inflatable mats used to catch suicidal jumpers?

Hydraulics? Or things like hydrolastic suspension?

3

u/Calypsosin 3d ago

There are products for bicycle tires like Slime that you can inject into the tires as a liquid, and in the event of a small puncture the liquid fills the hole and seals it on contact with outside air. I'm not sure on the details of it, I just remembered it from when I was buying my last bike.

With a non-newtonian fluid suicide jumpers would die on impact. I’m sorry but you need to think of another application for that one.

10

u/Dudeicorn 3d ago

Is he? I don’t really see a change in viscosity relative to shear forces...

12

u/pineapple_calzone 3d ago

There are many other kinds of non-newtonian fluid. A non-newtonian fluid is just any fluid that doesn't behave like a newtonian fluid, so there are lots of ways to break the rules.

2

u/Dudeicorn 3d ago

Ah, that would make sense. In engineering school they just said it was stress/viscosity relationships (oobleck, Kaye effect, etc.). Can anyone identify what Newtonian law of fluid is being broken here?

2

u/DarkElbow 3d ago

I think you're right. A Newtonian fluide is a fluide where the viscosity is independent from shear rate. Non Newtonian fluides viscosities change with shear rate. I don't think there's anything else to Newton's law.

2

u/pineapple_calzone 3d ago

Well strictly speaking, you are right, as that is the definition, but the point I'm getting at is that you can have a broad range of completely different behaviors out of non-Newtonian fluids. It's not that there are multiple rules to break, it's just that there are multiple ways of breaking them. This one in particular is probably some kind of long chain polymer, where shear forces can affect viscosity over long distances and in counterintuitive ways.

1

u/Cllzzrd 3d ago

The shaking of the cup imparts the shear force into the fluid. Since it isn’t a huge amount of force the change in viscosity is small. If it is allowed to settle before the shaking resumes you would see the surface resist the waves at first and then become more turbulent as the shaking continues

u/thedirtyknapkin 3d ago

if it's stimulated it's done in a way to make it seem real very subtly. notice the sightly blinking light? that's from it being in slow motion under an ac light. ac, or alternating current, alternates at the frequency lower than most slow motion video frame rates so you see them blink like that. in fact, if you know what region of the world this is from you can math out the frame rate from the blinks alone.

anyway, point is, if this is stimulated they considered quite a lot that most wouldn't when trying to make it look not stimulated.

4

u/rbesfe 3d ago

I personally think the hand and glass are real along with the flickering lights, but the liquid inside is not. I don't see any flickering in the reflections on the black goop.

4

u/thedirtyknapkin 3d ago

ooh, that's certainly possible, though I will say that flicker effect gets less noticeable the brighter the light gets. not just from this example, that's just generally how it tends to go. for me the jury's still out on this one. I have no reason to doubt it, but I'm a camera guy, not a physics guy. I don't see any obvious editing trickery, but I'm very aware that good editing can't be seen. I'll leave this one back with the physics people.

9

u/Cllzzrd 3d ago

It is a non-Newtonian fluid, specifically a pseudoplastic (shear thinning) fluid. Its viscosity changes with the amount of shear being applied. The more it is agitated the more it changes to being like water. Once it stops being agitated it sets up like molasses or honey.

This is the opposite to the corn starch and water that you might have played at home or in science class with that becomes more solid if you hit it but easily let’s your finger slide in when you poke it.

u/Cllzzrd 3d ago

Actually it is both viscous and a fluid.

It is a pseudoplastic fluid, which is a type of non-Newtonian fluid. It’s viscosity changes depending on how much shear force is being applied to the fluid.

In this case as it is agitated it becomes more water-like but not all the fluid is effected by the shear force so it pulls the sloshing fluid back into the cup as there is still more viscous fluid in the cup
