What is Lava?
Lava is made up of crystals, volcanic glass, and bubbles (volcanic gases). As magma gets closer to the surface and cools, it begins to crystallize minerals like olivine and form bubbles of volcanic gases. When lava erupts it is made up of a slush of crystals, liquid, and bubbles. The liquid "freezes" to form volcanic glass. Chemically lava is made of the elements silicon, oxygen, aluminum, iron, magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, and titanium (plus other elements in very small concentrations. Have a look at the background information in Minerals, Magma, and Volcanic Rocks.
What happens when you pour water on lava?
Depends on the type of lava and the temperature, If the lava is a runny type of lava then it will tend to pour into the seawater like honey before solidifying eventually after a short period of time.
If the lava is the sticky viscous type then it will usually break off into chunks into the sea followed by sizzling and piping before eventually cooling. And depending on whether or not there are air bubbles in the chunks, and it’s size, it may even float.
In regards to the temperature, lava will tend to result in hissing and steam due to it being naturally hot, and hot water surrounding the site where the lava flow enters the water, but if it is especially hot (or the water quite cold) then it may actually cause small explosions where the lava contacts the water.
