Carbon dioxide (CO2) accounts for approximately 0.03% of air by volume. It is a colorless gas with no smell or taste.
The cells of the body use oxygen (O2) to perform functions that keep us alive. The waste product created by the cells once they have performed these functions is carbon dioxide (CO2).
It is commonly used in aerosol sprays, fire extinguishers and carbonated beverages. Under pressure it becomes a liquid. If the liquid is allowed to expand it cools and partially freezes to form dry ice.
