On the previous page , we learned what heat does to an object when it is gained or released. Heat gains or losses result in changes in temperature, changes in state or the performance of work. Heat is a transfer of energy. When gained or lost by an object, there will be corresponding energy changes within that object. A change in temperature is associated with changes in the average kinetic energy of the particles within the object.
Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide. Instead of melting, solid carbon dioxide sublimes

How Does Dry Ice Work?
Chemistry , Frozen Carbon Dioxide, also referred to dry ice, can go from being a solid to a gas. What is this phase change called? Answers: 3.
Dry ice color show is the formation of carbonic acid H 2 CO 3 by the reaction of dry ice , the solid form of carbon dioxide CO 2 , and water. The reaction between these 2 compounds lower the pH of the solution, therefore making the solution more acidic. Dry ice has a temperature of — Solid carbon dioxide undergoes sublimation upon exposure to air. This means it transforms directly from the solid phase to the gaseous phase without melting into liquid.
