[SOLVED] Cross-linking polymers 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What changes in consistency (if any) do you expect when adding more borax solution to your slime? Why? 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution Slime is a cross-linked polymer. Borax (borate ion) is the cross-link. So if more of the borax solution is added, then the slime will become more cross linked and therefore more solid and less pliable. Is this correct?
