Dry Ice: A Frozen Mixture Of Carbon Gas
Background research Dry ice is a frozen mixture of Carbon dioxide, and like many other mixtures that give off Carbon dioxide dry ice is able to fill up a balloon. Using other substances that give off Carbon dioxide along with dry ice, which substances would be able to give off enough Carbon dioxide to inflate a balloon. The scientist will of course be controlling many variables. The scientists independent variable will be the substances they will be using, which is dry ice, yeast, and baking soda with acid. The scientist will also have substances that will remain constant, i.e., the balloons, the size of the bottles used and the amount of substance the scientist uses.

    Endothermic reactions are accompanied by the absorption of heat. The dissolving of ammonium nitrate in water is an example of an endothermic reaction. The solution resulting from this mixture is colder than either the ammonium nitrate or the water. This is the simple explanation of what happens in an instant ice pack. The more detailed information will be discussed in the following paragraphs.…

    The plastic tablet that gets placed into the water causes the water to spin like a tornado. Then when dry ice is added the water starts to spin and create smoke, the color of the water goes from dark green to light green. There is probably a chemical in the dry ice that is reacting with the universal indicator which is causing the substance to change colors. Hydrochloric acid changes the color of the mixture and makes it green to yellow but when you add more hydrochloric acid then the first time the color becomes darker and eventually turn purple. The hydrochloric acid reacts with the solution and makes the colors change, when you add more than a certain amount the color becomes darker.…

    North of Alaska, ripples scattered over the water as the small 'u' shaped trawler glided through the shivering water. As Summer swept through, the mountains with the remains of snow enclosed the lake, distant from the open sea. A small gulley was the only way to access the unknown feverish water. A thin layer of ice sat clumsily on the cool liquid. As the humble boat pierced through the slender layer of ice, it parted with ease leaving a slushy mix on the surface. Calmly, the middle aged man walked to the bow lowering the now ancient anchor. As ancient as the anchor so was the boat. White paint peeled from the side and hull, the raw timber now exposed. As the man walked across the decaying boards they screamed in protest. The man, Tim Kolveski,…
