What happens to lightning when it gets wet?
Well, I don't think lightning gets wet, because it's there and gone within 1/10th of a second, so first off, it wouldn't have time to get wet. Secondly, lightning isnt a solid object and just a bolt of electricity, so theres nothing to get wet. And finally, lightning is pure electricity, so it'd be really hot, so if it could get wet, any water that would touch it would evaporate immediately when it comes in contact. So no, I am pretty sure lightning cannot get wet.
lightning is made of plasma which is the highest energy and hottest stuff on the earth, lightning is so hot that it burns the oxygen around it creating a gap that is quickly filled with air, thats what creates the loud bang known as 'thunder' now, if lightning burns air then im pretty sure water doesnt stand a chance
Lightning cannot get wet because its not a physical manifestation of something, its like fire its a very large amount of electrical energy that represents itself in light and heat. So if you could touch lightning without it shocking you you would just move straight through it without feeling anything.
Lightning is a form of plasma and energy. I know that they make up water molecules, so I don't think that the electrons are large enough to get wet. Even if they did, the water would instantly evaporate.
maybe that's why it's dangerous, it's never not wet (or almost never)...not sure...
The water evaporates and nothing happens.
I do not think lightning can get wet.
