Why does baking soda react so violently with vinegar?



  1. 0 Votes

    When baking soda and vinegar mix the hydrogen ions from the vinegar combine with the bicarbonate from the┬ábaking soda to make carbonic acid. This compound then immediately decomposes into carbon dioxide and water. It is this last reaction that creates the bubbling and foaming that we consider so “violent.”
