Music: Kevin MacLeod Halloween 2007. Has it been a year already? Well it is time for my halloween demos. Thanks to Metacafe, this years halloween show will have 250 pounds of solid CO2 (dry ice) for my chemistry demonstrations. This reaction is between metallic magnesium and carbon dioxide. Magnesium reacts with oxygen in the air to form magnesium oxide, but when the only source of oxygen is from CO2 the reaction becomes much more energetic. The products are white magnesium oxide and blck carbon.2Mg + CO2--> 2MgO + C
