Dose the law of conservation work when doing an expirement with vinegar and baking soda.

  • chemistry -

    I'm not sure about this, but the law of conservation does state that no matter can be created or destroyed.

    So I'm guessing that the law of conservation does take affect when doing that experiment. I'm no chemist so I'm not 100% sure.

    so it does not work

  • chemistry -

    The law of conservation of mass is used for all chemical reactions including the one between vinegar and baking soda. Cause mass can neither be created or destroyed.

  • chemistry -

    It does work :) I'm sure!

  • chemistry -

    so how can i write that as a result

  • chemistry -

    Base on our response, what do you think you should write?

  • chemistry -

    The law of conservations of mass used for the chemical reactions will show that it will work. Cause mass can neither be created or destroyed.

    Can you add some more clues as well.

  • chemistry -

    If the law doesn't work then it isn't a very good law is it? It does work.
    CH3COOH + NaHCO3 ==> H2O + CH3COONa + CO2
    The mass of vinegar + mass of NaHCO3 = the mass of H2O + mass CH3COONa + mass CO2.

    Well, are you trying to answer your first question? If so, then I think that answer should be enough.

  • chemistry -

    what can i write as the result.

  • chemistry -

    I told you what to write. But you shouldn't copy what someone tells you. Put it in your own words.
