What happens when baking soda and vinegar are combined?
When Baking soda and vinegar are combined, it makes a fizzing reaction when the Acetic acid in the vinegar reacts with Sodium Bicarbonate (the chemical name for baking soda).
The result is some water, Sodium Acetate and Carbon Dioxide gas (the bubbles).
What actually happens is this: the acetic acid (that's what makes vinegar sour) reacts with sodium bicarbonate (a compound that's in baking soda) to form carbonic acid. It's really a double replacement reaction. Carbonic acid is unstable, and it immediately falls apart into carbon dioxide and water (it's a decomposition reaction). The bubbles you see from the reaction come from the carbon dioxide escaping the solution that is left. Carbon dioxide is heavier than air, so, it flows almost like water when it overflows the container. It is a gas that you exhale (though in small amounts), because it is a product of the reactions that keep your body going.
What's left is a dilute solution of sodium acetate in water.
Acetic Acid: CH3COOH -> CH3COO- + H+
Sodium Bicarbonate: NaHCO3 -> Na+ + HCO3 -
H++ HCO3- -> H2CO3 Carbonic Acid
H2CO3 -> H2O + CO2
It will "explode" in a way that most kids with those materials to hand could tell you about.
Nothing, but if you mix vinegar with baking soda, it fizzes. Read More

When baking soda and vinegar are combined they will weigh less than when they were seperated. Read More
What can happen if baking soda and vinegar mix? Read More
When baking soda and vinegar are combined, energy is released (in technical terms, the reaction is exothermic). The telltale sign of this is the fact that the substance/s produced are warm. Read More
when you put vinegar and baking soda together what happens is it gets fizzy and it starts to rumble as if it was a thunder storm it blows up Read More
If you mix baking soda and vinegar, you get a reaction that produces carbon dioxide gas. Vinegar is acetic acid and baking soda is sodium bicarbonate in chemistry. Read More
The baking soda reacts with the vinegar releasing carbon dioxide Read More
It blows up because chemical reaction triggered by mixing baking soda and vinegar produces Carbon Dioxide gas. Read More

When vinegar and baking soda are mixed, the chemical reactions that take place create carbon dioxide, which rises to the surface very quickly in bubbles, causing the fizz. Read More
It is vinegar and baking soda. Read More
This is an illogical question. Vinegar will react with baking soda with the evolution of carbon dioxide. But there is no role of mothballs in this reaction. Read More
When mothballs are mixed with vinegar, baking soda, and soda, the mothballs will "dance." The dancing affect comes from bubbles that form on the underside of the mothballs in the container. Read More
If one is working with equal amounts, baking soda might produce more carbon dioxide when mixed with vinegar, because baking powder is already combined with an acidic ingredient. Read More

The more vinegar to baking soda, the better. I only tested up to 1 part baking soda/5 parts vinegar. Also, add the baking soda to the vinegar, not the other way around. Read More
When you combine them it is a chemical reaction (change) yes, but them combined in a solution is a physical change. Read More

well first of all the bubbles in the baking soda rinse from the top and explodes! the vinegar has special stuff in it that makes that baking soda explode. that why there is a chemical reaction with baking soda and vinegar. Angelmist473~ Read More
