The lid pops off and an audible sound is heard.
I havent tried this one so what happens when you put dry ice in an eppendorf tube?.
1. To an empty eppendorf tube place one pellet of dry ice into the tube
And out of curiosity how would you do this?
2. Close the cap of the eppendorf tube.
3. Quickly place sealed tube in a warm place
4. Retreat to a safe distance.
Note: Beware of patrolling safety officer. Safety first. Wear safety glasses.
Yes. You have a few minutes. Mostly it depends on the room temperature. Do note that your hands are warm. Use a rack to more the tube. Warm hands will sublime the carbon dioxide pellet.
Do I just add some of the ice pellets to an eppendorf? Should i stand back pretty quickly after doing it?
Most certainly. This is purely a hypothetical discussion, in the even that you should find dry ice in a sealed eppendorf. The more extreme version of this endeavour is to place liquid nitrogen into a closed eppendorf tube. The bang is louder, more dramatic and more dangerous. Real injury is possible.
(Of course i just want to find out what not to do, you know.... in case it happened to me by accident !!!, I wouldnt dream of putting dry ice in an eppendorf )
