A pitch drop experiment is a long-term experiment which measures the flow of a piece of pitch over many years.

Pitch‘ is the name for any of a number of highly viscous liquids which appear solid, most commonly bitumen.

At room temperature, tar pitch flows at a very low rate, taking several years to form a single drop.
