Reaction of sodium carbonate in acid. This is an example of an acid-carbonate reaction. Here, the acid is ethanoic acid (a weak acid found in vinegar). The reaction produces a metal salt (here the soluble sodium ethanoate), carbon dioxide (the bubbles seen here) and water. This reaction can be compared to reactions with stronger acids, such as hydrochloric acid.
