  • ummmm, snow or sand?
  • Flour, activated charcoal, polyethylene granules. Any finely divided substance.
  • Sugar.
  • Ice can flow...(: Glass also with time gravity can make it sag or flow very slowly.
  • Ice, lava, glass
  • Glass - it's like a liquid in super slow motion. This phenomenon has been observed in stained glass panes of really old churches. If you take an accurate measuring device and measure the thickness of the glass, it's thicker at the bottom end.
  • Outkast.
  • "Mercury" otherwise known as "quicksilver" is a metal in liquid form.
  • Any particulate matter. Salt, sugar, sand, flour, snow, a whole truck full of tennis balls dumping them in the street...
  • You might be thinking about a Newtonian fluid (a fluid that flows when undisturbed but turns into a solid when handled) this can be acheived by adding about a tablespoon of water to 1/2 a cup of cornflour. Mix this until the cornflour is a liquid, than pick some up and play with it. You should notice that when you play with it it has the property of a solid, but leave it and it runs through your fingers, like a liquid!!!! Hope this answers your question :-)
  • Sand flows and there many instances when it flows very much like a liquid.
  • Any powder. (EG SAND, BABY POWER, ANY!) Powders are in the solid state. They have just been ground into such fine particles that they can flow similar to that of water. Think of an egg timer (the thing ur mouse cursor probably turns into when ur computer is "thinking"). That's sand (which is solid), yet it flows in the same way water would.
  • Marbles, frozen peas, cars on the highway
  • It depends how you would define solid. If you mean as in scientifically (has a very strong lattice), then substances like sand would count. If you look at it in a more literal meaning, you could define liquids as solid - as in you can feel them. But I suppose that is not what you meant! :) Any slope inclines a substance to "flow" downward, so I suppose anything can really flow although liquids are better at it!
  • a plastic solid ----- (I added the above line to give a short answer resuming the following)---- "A fluid is defined as a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress. All liquids and all gases are fluids. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids, gases, plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids."

  • Is it MERCURY. That is Hg.
  • Mercury is a metal in liquid form but that doesn't make it a solid that can flow. It just has a very very low melting point. THe glass answer, is a misconception that has been around for a very long time and even if it did happen it would just mean that the glass wasn't a solid because by definition a solid doesn't flow. There is some belief that solids are liquids with extremely high velocity but this theory isn't backed very well.
  • Glass. If you look at any really really old panes of glass you will see they are thicker at the bottom than the top. :o)
  • Hi, believe it or not, actually glass is a solid by appearence and by general classification by the public. However, it is ACTUALLY a liquid. Although it takes a LONG tie for this to happen, there are examples of glass panes from medieval-time windows that are bulging at the bottom from the flow of the glass by gravity. Cool, huh?
  • mercury
  • An electron. It has a mass and yet it flows as EM wave.
  • electricity
  • mercury Hg
