    i know that they are liquids and convert to solids on applying pressure but how does that work

    Rheopecty or rheopexy is the rare property of some non-Newtonian fluids to show a time-dependent change in viscosity; the longer the fluid undergoes shearing force, the higher its viscosity. Rheopectic fluids, such as some lubricants, thicken or solidify when shaken. The opposite type of behaviour, in which fluids become less viscous the longer they undergo shear, is called thixotropy. examples of rheopectic fluids include gypsum pastes and printers inks.

    Some clays are thixotropic, Drilling muds used in geotechnical applications, synovial fluid found in joints between some bones
