Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate Acetic Tube Liberates Immediately With Brisk Effervescence

When you add sodium hydrogen carbonate to acetic acid in a test tube, a gas liberates immediately with … this gas. Describe the…


When acetic acid is added to NaHCO3 Solution, and when a burning splinter is brought carbon dioxide gas with brisk effervescence from the test tube.

This gas can be verified by following method: When carbon dioxide gas is turned through lime water, the lime water turns milky. It turns milky due to formation of Calcium carbonate CaCO3. The chemical reaction is as follows:

When carbon dioxide is passed through the calcium carbonate, calcium hydrocarbonate is formed and the milkiness of water disappears.
