Why is glass considered a super cooled liquid?
Ever observed an old glass window? It will be thicker at the base than the top. This shows that glass flows(at a very slow rate) and it can flow because it is amorphous.
Glass is an amorphous solid. Just like liquids, amorphous solids also have a tendency to flow, though very slowly. Therefore, these are called pseudo solids or supercooled liquids.
