    Dry Ice. At standard atmospheric pressure, the solid form of carbon dioxide called “dry ice” undergoes a phase change not to a liquid but straight to a gas. This process is called sublimation, and like other phase transitions

    Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide. Instead of melting, solid carbon dioxide sublimes according to the following equation: CO2(s)--> CO2(g). When dry ice is added to warm water, heat from the water causes the dry ice to sublime more

    The physical properties of ice are different from the physical properties of dry ice (frozen carbon dioxide). But the physical properties of gaseous water vapor and the physical properties of gaseous carbon dioxide are the same.
