Elements can be solid and liquid at same time


  • Scientists have discovered a new state of physical matter in which atoms can exist as both solid and liquid simultaneously.
  • Until now, the atoms in physical material existed typically in one of three states – solid, liquid or gas.
  • A team led by scientists from the University of Ednburgh used powerful computer simulations to study the existence of the state – known as the chain-melted state.
