How Soda And Soda Affect When Poured Over Dry Ice

Dry ice is a solid form of carbon dioxide that produces a cold dense mist. I first learned what Dry Ice was in fifth grade, this was due to the fact that my class had taken a field trip to River Legacy Park. Where we saw an experiment and learned facts about dry ice. This led to a fascination with dry ice, in this experiment I will test whether the temperature of water and soda affect when poured over Dry ice. Dry Ice has multiple purposes some of which, is chemotherapy, to carbonate liquids, store food, and accelerate plant growth. Since, I always liked the thought of working with Dry Ice I had begun to think of an experiment to do for the IA involving Dry Ice. After much consideration I choose to test how soda and water would

Thermodynamics is “the study of the effects of work, heat, and energy on a system”. In Thermodynamics to find the temperature change I will use the formula: Q=MCT. In this formula Q represents the heat added, M is the mass, C is the specific heat, and Tis the change in temperature. From using this equation I will later figure out the uncertainties I have in this experiment using the formula: Amount of DataGiven (average data/ amount of data given) then you take the given and subtract it from the answer from the formula above, lastly you add it up and square root it. Next, you put it in this form: average data ± answer using the formula above. Lastly, I will use error bars on the graphs to represent the uncertainty of the graphs. Error bars are represented by this image:
Subsequently, I choose this experiment because the thought of using Dry Ice in a experiment was very intriguing to me due to the properties of Dry Ice. This experiment made me think a lot about the uses of Dry Ice and how they are used in everyday life. Initially I believed that Dry Ice did not have that many purposes in life, but in the process of experimenting I learned the purpose of Dry Ice and the temperature changes that come with Dry Ice.
