Dry Ice Science Class


Language: English
Views: 801

Description: Dry Ice is one of the most fun things that you can ever play with but also pretty dangerous. It is 109 degrees below zero. It's made out of something that's in your breath when you breathe out. It's what plants breathe in through the holes in their leaves. It is the same stuff that makes the bubbles in soda pop. It is hard as a rock. It makes fog and it is also making something that you cannot see. It's making that gas that it is made of, which is called carbon dioxide. It is the gas that they are blaming on the Greenhouse effect. It's formed wherever you burn anything, whenever you breathe out. It's stored up in our oceans. If you touch it your hand won't stick. Dry ice, since it is always producing the gas, it pushes off whatever tries to hold on to it. It feels slippery. If you put your hand on it for too long you freeze your skin. And it takes awhile. It numbs your skin while it is freezing. Learn everything about dry ice in our online class.
