chem - dry ice activity

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.

    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

    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

    125 g of dry ice (solid CO2) is dropped into a beaker containing 500 g of 66°C water. The dry ice converts directly to gas, leaving the solution. When the dry ice is gone, the final temperature of the water is 29°C. What is the

    when you add dry ice to water, it seems to boil. why is that? You are then transfering heat from the liquid water to the solid dry ice, which sublimes gaseous CO2 into the water.
