What is the temperature and internal energy (BTU/Lbmol) for solid carbon dixide (dry ice)?

Paul :

Carbon dioxide (CO2) exists as a solid over a range of temperatures and pressures. The solid phase field is bounded by the melting curve (solid --> liquid) and the sublimation curve (solid --> gas). Since the internal energy is a function of both temperature and pressure, it's difficult to give an answer to your question. Can you provide some further details ?
