  • Water isn't wet because the molecules don't stick to each other, But rather the surface they touch. The water molecules actually flow AROUND each other, And move freely in the confined space given.

  • Water is not wet, As wetness is merely a description of water on the surface of or absorbed by an object. If an object absorbed a lot of water (i. E. A handkerchief or towel), It is referred to as wet. Similarly, If a wall has water on its surface, It is also wet. Water itself, However, Is not wet, As water cannot be absorbed by itself, Nor would calling water wet because it is on the surface of itself make any sense.

  • Water makes things wet, That does not mean it is wet.

  • Think about it, If you put water in water does it make the water wet? Water makes things wet but it does not make itself wet

  • When do we use the term wet? Lemme give some examples. The blanket is wet. This paper is wet. This cube of metal is wet. Only for SOLID or semisolid materials that are surrounded by liquid. Water is a liquid, So it could not possibly be wet as this is saying Trump is under Trump's govern.

  • Not sure I'm right about this one.

  • If water were not wet, Then how does the term "dry ice" make sence? "Dry ice" implies that normal ice is wet, But normal ice is just water, Therefor water is "wet". Although I'd also argue that ice is dry unless there is liquid water on it. Water does stick to itself. The term is cohesion (versus adhesion). Looking at the dictionary we can see that water is wet by most definitions because it "is saturated with water" and it "consists of water or another liquid" I think the confusing thing is that wet has to meanings: 1. In the state of having water on it. 2. Having the ability to get other things wet. Water falls more into that second category.
