chem - dry ice activity

posted by .

when the dry ice is in the water it occasionally makes a popping sound. how can you explain that?

I expect you are hearing the stress fractures of the dry ice crystals. The same thing happens when you take VERY cold ice cubes from the refrigerator, place them in a glass, then add tap water over the ice. You will hear it pop. Try it.
