What is dry ice?

Dry ice is a form of carbon dioxide. which is in solid form. The use of dry ice is increasing nowadays that it is easily available in restaurants. This dry ice, which looks like normal snow, does not get wet and does not become water when it melts. It is several times colder than normal ice, with temperatures as low as -80 degrees. So normal snow temperature is only -4 degrees.

How is dry ice made?

To make dry ice, carbon dioxide is first cooled to 109 degrees Fahrenheit and compressed, causing the gas to take the form of ice. After this it is given the shape of an ice cube. It is extremely dangerous, so even touching it is forbidden. After exposure to a warm environment, it does not dissolve into water, but evaporates as a gas. Dry ice melts in the mouth and turns into carbon dioxide gas.

According to doctors, dry ice carbon dioxide gas starts damaging the surrounding cells. In these circumstances, a person may become unconscious or even die. Not only eating dry ice but also touching it can damage the skin. Because it can cause bleeding on skin contact and bleeding from the mouth.
