Here’s What Happens When You Insert A Coin Into A Block Of Dry Ice

As soon as the coins are inserted into the block of dry ice, they begin shaking rather violently, but why? Well…. when the coin is pushed into the block, its warmth causes the CO2 surrounding the coin to evaporate. After some time, the coin forms a larger hole in the dry ice, producing larger air currents that push the coin around, causing it to vibrate and appear to be shivering.
