Have you ever wondered...

...what happens to Spiderman’s webs after he has finished swinging?

Spiderman whooshes to places by shooting webs from his wrist. He swings on these webs, alternating between the hands, to produce forward motion. I wonder what happens to these webs after he has finished swinging.

Do they keep hanging there for people see and acknowledge the existence of Spiderman? Or do they vanish into thin air? Or is it that they retract back into our friendly neighborhood hero's wrist?

I wonder what happens. Now why didn’t Sam Raimi think of that? Food for thought?

it decomposes. once the web string is stretched and let go, it reduces to a quantity inversely proportional to the pressure by which it was pulled, thereby usually rendering it minisculy small and is swept away by the wind.

Sounds like a perfect explanation for normal spider-webs. But our hero uses his wrist to expel the web, which suggests that it is in liquid form. The spray reaches the target, stick to it, and solidifies almost instantly into a strong, elastic fiber. The length of the fiber will at least be equal to the distance between our hero and the target. Therefore, the theory of it retracting back and reducing into a miniscule thread seems hard to believe.

Spiderman and the story is obviously only a story! This is only a heathy debate about how realistic or unrealistic the 'shooting-webs-from-your-wrist' phenomenon is! Something akin the debate on the Matrix that was very popular on the Internet. Cheers!
