Is water actually wet?
The term "wet" is having water, and since water is already water, and since it cannot have itself, water is technically not wet. All objects other than water are 'wet' because 'wet' pertains to an object that isn't entirely made up of water to have water. Since water is entirely made up of water, it isn't considered 'wet'. Technically, yes, unless you only consider something covered in water to be wet.

How many water molecules does it take for water to have the property of being wet?
Answer One molecule of water is not wet and the property of wetness is derived from our experience of interacting with the substance. Technically water isn't wet until it interacts with another substance and/or surface. The primary reason water is considered wet is because of the loose bonds between molecules making it less viscous as compared to other liquids but none are inherently wet. The short answer to your question would be two. while you would not be able to feel the sense of wetness there is a bond between the molecules to allow measurable movement of the water on a surface to attribute the property of wetness. Without movement you cannot feel wetness.
