Why is the water wet?
The young mind begins to learn everything at once. The sea of simple questions on complex topics attacks the intellect of the parent. These questions force us to transform complex material into accessible children's science. Here, for example, why is the water wet?
In our world, there are four states of matter:
- Solid - solid substances (stool, clothing, paper, earth, trees, stones);
- Liquid - liquid substances (tea, water, milk, oil, gasoline);
- Gas - gas mixtures (oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide - the air that people breathe);
- Plasma is a substance in the form of plasma (ionized gas).
As you have already understood, water refers to liquidsubstances. The liquid is in the intermediate stage between gas and water. It retains volume, but does not hold the form, the particles of the liquid are loosely related to each other. Therefore, it turns out that fine particles of any liquid, including water, can be attached to other substances under external influence. For example, water "sticks" to your hands, water poured on the ground absorbed into it. There is a feeling, as if the hands or the ground were wet. Since water, due to its special state, "clings" to other objects, we call it wet.
