Question #39122
why water is wet?
Expert's answer
In fact, no one liquid is wet “itself”. “Wetness” is no more than the feeling of our skin receptors. When drops of liquid contact with our skin, at first it tries to establish the thermal equilibrium with skin, and the heat capacity of liquids, especially water, is high enough for our receptors to feel cold. At second, liquid evaporates rapidly, and the smaller the drop the faster the evaporation, and heat of evaporation will in the end absorbed from our skin, and this intensifies our feeling of cold while our skin is covered by drops of water.
