  • Water is wet so that the fish and other ocean, lake and river creatures can move through it with fluent ease. Friction is not your friend when you are trying to move. We need to be able to drink. We need for boats not to sink. We need for our plumbing to work. This is why water is wet.

  • well 'Wet' is just a term used to describe how something feels. its similar to asking, 'why is a chair called a chair?'. Water isn't wet. Wetness is a description of our experience of water; what happens to us when we come into contact with water in such a way that it impinges on our state of being.'

  • If it was hard it would be ICE anon . . . lmao. I am not sure what the purpose of this question is, but I will say that water is wet, because it is a liquid.

  • Lol- louise2- since I'm a geology student I can answer that! In the interest of brevity I will answer partially. Sedimentary rocks (one of three kinds) are hard because they are made up of sand, shells, dust and many other things piled all on top of each other. Over a long period of time, the pressure squooshes and cements them together into one hard mass- a rock!
