    This article explains how fog is produced when dry ice and water react. One might think that the fog is made by water in the atmosphere but Kuntzleman questioned this common thought’s validity and explored dry-ice + water=fog at the molecular level. His first step was to accurately measure fog density by using the following equation: fog density= -log (I/I_0 ) with “I_0 being the intensity of incident light and I being the intensity of light that travels through the fog” (Kuntzleman, 644). This allowed
