Liquid Carbon Dioxide

Liquid carbon dioxide forms only at pressures above 5.1 atm; the triple point of carbon dioxide is about 518 kPa at -56.6 °C. The critical point is 7.38 MPa at 31.1 °C. Plumbers use equipment that forces pressurised liquid CO2 … Continue reading

Density of Dry Ice

The density of dry ice varies, but usually ranges between about 1.4 and 1.6 g/cm3 (87–100 lb/ft3). Dry Ice, solid C02 would therefore sink to the bottom in salt water.
