Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide, a gas at standard temperature and pressure with the chemical formula CO2. Its molar mass is 44.0095 grams per mole. Its boiling point is -69.8 degrees Fahrenheit, and its subl... More »

The chemical formula for carbon dioxide is CO2. Carbon dioxide is most often created during the life cycle of plants and the exhalation of breath in animals and humans. More »

To remain in its solid phase, dry ice must be kept at temperatures lower than -109.3 degrees Fahrenheit. At higher temperatures, dry ice begins to sublimate, or turn directly from a solid into a gas. More »

Dry ice can be used to successfully remove light dents that cover a large area on a vehicle. Dents found on a car's hood, roof, fender, trunk or doors are all suitable areas to be treated with dry ice. The damaged area m... More »

A dry ice bomb is constructed by confining solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) in an enclosed container and allowing it to sublime into gaseous carbon dioxide until the container ruptures. Warm water is used to accelerate the... More »
