When hot magma comes out from a volcano, it’s at 700 to 1,200 °C (1,292 to 2,192 °F). Have you ever wondered what it’s like to step into it?
Here’s an experiment that shows you what would happen if you accidentaly stepped into lava.
WARNING: Don’t try this at home!
This is the description below the video posted on youtube: “This video shows how pressure applied to this dense material only causes a slight indentation. While this may not be surprising (it is liquid rock), I think that many people think of lava as more of a hot-watery-like substance. You would never fall into a lava lake the way you would a swimming pool, the molten rock is much more dense, so you would simply land on it, sink a little, and be burned.”
