The chemical equation for this reaction is as follows: 2NaHCO₃ → Na₂CO₃ + CO₂ + H₂O In words, two moles of sodium bicarbonate decompose into one mole of sodium carbonate, carbon dioxide, and water. The evolution of carbon dioxide gas during this reaction can often be observed as bubbling in the solution. This reaction is commonly used in cooking and baking to release carbon dioxide gas, which helps dough rise. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Click on image to update the captcha.
