The Structure Of Glass Makes Zero Sense
You don’t think twice about picking up a glass of water, tilting it towards your head, and taking a big swig. But because glass is amorphous and doesn’t have a well-ordered molecular structure, it makes it unlike other solid objects and does not qualify as solid. But it doesn’t qualify as liquid, either, since its structure isn’t irregular enough. It fits right in between. This all means that the structure of glass is constantly moving and evolving by slow movements of its molecules. Glass remains a mystery to scientists, and they’re constantly working on trying to figure out its structure and material. They have concluded, though, that there are similar structural building blocks between both amorphous and crystalline metallic glass (BBC).
