If You Fell Into a Volcano Full of Lava, How Would You Die?

If You Fell Into a Volcano Full of Lava, How Would You Die?

Many of us have thought about this “If you fell into a volcano, how would you die? Would you sink and drown in the lava or get burned to death on the surface before you could go under?”

Regardless, it doesn’t sound charming, yet Dipping isn’t logical.

To start with, we should get the language down. Magma is a liquid stone underneath the world’s surface. Lava is magma that is come over the surface, ordinarily through volcanic ejection. In case you fall into a well of lava, it’s magma that is your concern.

The majority of us most likely consider lava in the feeling of lava streams, however, you could likewise fall into a lava lake, which is lava that pools in a vent, cavity, or a downturn on particular kinds of the fountain of liquid magma. For our motivations here, magma and lava are both awful news.

Magma and lava are liquid stones, however, they don’t act precisely like different fluids. To start with, they’re exceptionally thick—a few fold the amount of water and the human body. Due to that thickness contrast, a body dumped into a fountain of liquid magma, regardless of whether it has a place with Gollum or a conciliatory virgin, will sail.

In addition, both magma and lava can be thousands to millions of times thicker than water, and will not misshape so much or as quick when you hit it and allow you to sink.

In this way, for the most part, the idea of lava/magma makes it improbable that you’ll sink. With the right body, the right lava/magma, and the right fall, however, there’s no assurance.

If You Fell Into a Volcano Full of Lava, How Would You Die?

Assuming you don’t sink, however, consuming to death isn’t really the major choice (and on the off chance that you sank, you presumably wouldn’t suffocate to such an extent). It isn’t actually an either/or question.

You may blast into blazes and be consumed when you hit the lava/magma’s surface (depending upon the kind, lava’s temperature goes from roughly 1,200 to 2,200 degrees). You may likewise consume before you hit the lava/magma because of the brilliant hotness.

Or on the other hand, you could suffocate or roast your lungs because of the hot air and gases over the outer layer of the lake. (Obviously, you can get very close to lava on a superficial level without consuming, however within a fountain of liquid magma is an encased space, so the hotness can’t disseminate a lot. The radiant hotness is possibly a lot higher here.)

There’s additionally the chance of hitting a very thick substance at a rapid speed and essentially breaking your neck or airing out your skull.

This is, tragically, one of those inquiries you can’t respond to with considerably more than hypotheticals since testing those thoughts would be extremely challenging—and crazy.
