How Sublime: Exploring and Measuring the Triple Point of Dry Ice

This How Sublime: Exploring and Measuring the Triple Point of Dry Ice lesson plan also includes:

Solid, liquid, or gas? Or all three? Young chemists make observations of dry ice and measure the pressure associated with its triple point. Pre-lab exercises include drawing Lewis structures and explaining bonding theories. An observation table and detailed procedures for measuring pressure are provided, along with analysis and conclusion questions. If you are planning on spending any time on sublimation with your chemistry class, this resource will be a strong supplement.
