  1. Write one paragraph explaining briefly what the topic of this lab is, what you were supposed to have learned, and why it was worth learning.
  2. Provide one paragraph long answers for the following questions:
    1. Describe qualitatively the complex fluids you have experimented with. How can we classify them?
    2. What parameters can we use to classify them? What experiments did you perform in the class to find out the properties of the complex liquids?
    3. What can you tell about the viscosity of liquids studied in the lab?
    4. Which branches of industry can profit the most from studies of complex fluids? What complex liquids do you encounter everyday (describe their properties)?
