It is a physical change (phase change). Dry Ice is frozen carbon dioxide gas. At atmospheric pressure, liquid CO2 is unstable. So the frozen solid "sublimes" turning directly from a solid to a gas (absorbing heat from around it).

Dry ice doesn't "turn into smoke". Dry ice causes moisture in the air to condense, forming fog. This is a purely physical, not chemical, change.

It isn't. Answer --> It is an example of phase change and thus a physical change. Not a chemical change


Is dry ice turning into carbon dioxide a physical or chemical change?

The sublimation of dry ice into gaseous carbon dioxide is a physical change. It does not undergo any chemical changes.


Is the Disappearance of dry ice a physical or chemical change?

The "disappearance" of dry ice is a physical change. What you refer to as disappearance is actually sublimation where the solid CO2 turns to a gas without going through the liquid phase. Dry is is solid CO2 and when it disappears it becomes gaseous CO2, so it is a physical change.
