Dry Ice in Warm Water Experiment

Dry Ice in Water

We know that Dry Ice is the solid form of Carbon Dioxide. There are a lot of fun experiments that you can do with dry ice. In this experiment we will see what happens if keeping dry ice in warm water. By the way, do you know why we call solid carbon dioxide as dry ice? If you don’t please read our post about dry ice. true, we need dry ice to perform this experiment. Don’t worry, we can make dry ice at home.

Dry Ice in Warm Water (Part 1): Make Fog in a Bowl

Dry Ice in Warm Water ExperimentFog is lovely – to see and to play with. For the first part of this experiment we are going to make fog with dry ice.

You need:

  1. Dry ice – 100 to 500gms
  2. Warm water
  3. A bowl
  4. Cloth gloves or leather gloves
  5. Adult supervision

What next?

Wear your gloves and make a clear area as your work space. Arrange the materials you needed for the experiment in the work space.

Step 1: Take warm water in the bowl and put some dry ice into it.

That’s it. When dry ice gets in touch with warm water, solid Carbon Dioxide changes it’s state to gaseous Carbon Dioxide.

Dry Ice in Warm Water (Part 2): Make Magic Bubbles

Dry Ice With Warm WaterIn this experiment, once again we are experiencing the change of carbon dioxide from its solid form to gaseous state. However, in this experiment we will be requiring a few more things (Yet we are going to use dry ice in warm water).

You need:

  1. Dry Ice – 200 t0 500 gms
  2. Warm water
  3. Bowl
  4. Liquid dish soap
  5. Spoon
  6. Gloves
  7. Adult supervision

What next?

Step 1: The the bowl and pour in some warm water.

Step 2: Add a few drops of liquid dish soap and mix it with the water using the spoon.

Step 3: Add some dry ice and watch the bubbles forming.

Carbon dioxide is locked in the bubbles as gas and if you want to see them live, start popping the bubbles.

  1. I love all these various experiments that you can do with dry ice. This is such a cool tool to use for fun and for functionality. I will let my brother know this since he wants to get some emergency ice to use.
