Recently, the trend “Is Water Wet?” has been surfacing around the internet. It had created many conflicts and fights over this dumb, simple, question. So today, we’ll be looking at both side of the story and figure out why people are fighting over this and why people think water is wet/not wet.

Why people think water is wet:

Water is wet because water is surrounded by other water molecules which is surrounded by itself. The molecules are touching, so water would then be wet, the water molecules are getting each other wet. If you are underwater, you are wet. You can’t say that you aren’t wet underwater when you literally have water touching you. Your skin has been saturated with water. Water can’t make other things wet if it is not wet itself.

Why water is not wet:

Wetness is a term used for when water or some other kind of liquid is on top of or covering something else. If we are to say water is wet, we’d just be saying that water is on water, which it’s not, because if you take water + water it’s still water, just more than one atom of it. Water molecules are covered in other molecules is not true. We know that things that are completely submerged in water are not wet because the molecules in the water are still in their molecular pattern. So, if you’re underwater do you feel wet?  I get when you say “water is wet” but you’re not stating something, you’re just describing water.

Which side do you pick? Do you think water is wet, or do you think water isn’t wet? We’ll never know!
