Neutralisation. Vinegar being poured into a beaker containing washing soda in a simple neutralisation experiment. Neutralisation is the process in which an acid reacts with a base (alkali) to form a salt and water. Here, the vinegar is the acid (acetic acid) being added to the washing soda base (sodium carbonate). Bubbles of carbon dioxide gas form in the beaker as the vinegar is poured in. When the reaction is complete the beaker will contain a salt (sodium acetate) and water.
