But our everyday experience typically is of things that are somewhere in between. Think of most objects that we deal with on a daily basis: glassware, salt and pepper, soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, ketchup... The physics of these kinds of objects and materials is in fact an active area of research and is classified as “soft matter physics."…
