Brown University It’s counterintuitive but true: Some microorganisms that use flagella for locomotion are able to swim faster in gel-like fluids such as mucus. Research engineers at Brown University have figured out why. It's the angle of the coil that matters. Findings are reported in Physical Review Letters. A high-angle helix helps microorganisms like sperm and bacteria swim through mucus and other viscoelastic fluids, according to a new study by researchers from Brown University...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online If you´ve ever run across a section of beach where a wave has just receded, you know that the wet sand there can act and feel as hard as concrete. The thick mixture of sand and water that can be poured like a liquid but is hard when struck is an example of what scientists call a non-Newtonian fluid. According to a study published today in Nature, researchers from the University of Chicago have demonstrated that a compression of...

The new measurements, by UCLA physics professor Giovanni Zocchi and former UCLA physics graduate student Yong Wang, are approximately 100 times higher in resolution than previous mechanical measurements, a nanotechnology feat which reveals an isolated protein molecule, surprisingly, is neither a solid nor a liquid. "Proteins are the molecular machines of life, the molecules we are made of," Zocchi said. "We have found that sometimes they behave as a solid and sometimes as a liquid. "Solids...

In things thick and thin: Cornell physicists explain how fluids — such as paint or paste - behave by observing how micron-sized suspended particles dance in real time. Using high-speed microscopy, the scientists unveil how these particles are responding to fluid flows from shear — a specific way of stirring. (Science, Sept. 2). Observations by Xiang Cheng, Cornell post-doctoral researcher in physics and Itai Cohen, Cornell associate professor of physics, are the first to link...

By Diana Lutz, Washington University in St. Louis Experiments show that drilling mud that behaved more like quicksand and less like ketchup might have prevented the top-kill blowout On May 25th, 2010, the online arm of Upstream, a newspaper for the international oil and gas industry, reported that British Petroleum had started top-kill procedures on the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico. "The company said that the operation, which will pump heavy mud down the wellbore in an attempt to gain...

Let's do a little science experiment. If you have a can of whipped cream in the fridge, go get it out. Spray a generous dollop into a spoon and watch carefully. Notice anything interesting? The whipped cream just did something rather puzzling. First it flowed smoothly out of the nozzle like a liquid would, and then, a moment later, it perched rigidly in the spoon as if it were solid. What made it change? (While you're pondering this question, insert spoon into mouth, in the name of...
