A simple way to make your friend impress......

Dry ice was first observed in 1825 by the French chemist Charles Thilorier.[3][4] Upon opening the lid of a large cylinder containing liquid carbon dioxide he noted much of the carbon dioxide rapidly evaporated leaving solid dry ice in the container. Throughout the next 60 years, dry ice was observed and tested by many scientists.Dry ice is typically produced in two standard sizes: solid blocks and cylindrical pellets. A standard block is most common and will normally be about 30 kg. These are largely used in the shipping industry because they sublime slowly due to a relatively small surface area. The pellets are around 1 cm in diameter and can be bagged easily. This form of dry ice is more suited to small scale use, for example at grocery stores and laboratories.
