Is Lava Wet?

Postby Jewish Underground State » Tue Aug 09, 2022 4:32 pm

Is Lava Wet?

Another idea I stole from Objection lol. Hopefully this thread doesn’t get locked since I didn’t put a good introduction for the Water Is Wet thread.

Ok so here is the deal. The definition of wet means covered or submerged in a liquid. Liquids that are wet can make solids they are on wet. Lava is extremely hot rock that is in a liquid state.

Thus my opinion is lava is wet when it is in its liquid state but not wet when it dries. This is because lava is a liquid when it is hot. In this state it can submerge solids making them wet. It follows most of qualities that make something wet. However when it dries it is not wet as it turns into a solid when it dries. Hopefully this makes some short of sense

However you can use the point that lava isn’t a liquid when it is hot to counter my point.

Debate this on this thread

I literally got telegrams telling me lava was molten rock.

Not naming any names.

He didn’t give me any reason for his opinion on the matter

I wouldn’t really consider Lava to be wet as in my opinion, Something that’s wet usually isn’t something that can melt whatever it touches. But that is just my opinion.

no.

lava isn't really "liquid" per se, and it certainly can't make things wet or saturate things.

In the same sense that the liquid methane making up Titan's lakes are wet. Since it has cryovolcanoes erupting water and the surface has a large amount of water ice which serves a similar role as rock (areas with water ice 'sand' and mountains composed of granite-hard ice for instance), you could say that water is the lava of that moon and that we'd be magma monsters from the perspective of anything living there which uses liquid methane the way we use water.

Also, "freezing" is a better term than "drying" to describe lava hardening into rock.

So the sensation of "wet" is what happens when a think film of liquid adheres to your skin. So, for example, mercury is not wet (please just take my word on this.)

Now some lava sticks to your skin, and some does not. It depends on the temperature and composition of the lava. If it does, the lava can be considered "wet." But you are unlikely to notice because you will be preoccupied with another sensation.

Maybe? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wetting - it depends on what it comes in contact with. And a lot of other factors, apparently.

No in a street-wise sense.

Hell no. It needs to have water in order to be wet, and the water has to be what makes it a liquid in the first place.

My lava' is occasionally wet.

But for the molten rock, I dunno, is quicksilver wet? I'd argue they both either are or aren't.
