Dry Ice


Dry ice is the solid form of the gas carbon dioxide.  A full block, measuring about 10 inches square, weighs 50 lbs.  The temperature of dry ice is 110 below zero.  When handling dry ice, wear work gloves as the extremely low temperature will cause frostbite.  Dry ice has many uses, chief among them as a refrigerant to prevent food from perishing and to ship blood products.
