  1. 2NaOH + CO2 ==> Na2CO3 + H2O

    2OH^-(aq) + CO2(g) ==> CO3^2-(aq) + H2O(l)

  2. This is a 2-step process...
    1. Carbon dioxide and water react to make carbonic acid.
    CO2(aq)+H2O(l)⟶H2CO3(aq)
    Carbonic acid reacts with hydroxide ions (acid/base metathesis rxn) to make sodium bicarbonate and water.
    2. H2CO3(aq)+NaOH(aq)⟶NaHCO3(aq)+H2O(l)

    Ionic Equation => H2CO3(aq) + Na^+(aq) + OH^-(aq) ==> Na^+(aq) + HCO3^-(aq) + H2O(l)

    Net Ionic Equation (Na^+(aq) is spectator ion):
    H2CO3(aq) + OH^-(aq) ==> HCO3^-(aq) + H2O(l)
