For a lab, I have to write out the balanced equation for the titration of vinegar (containing acetic acid) with sodium hydroxide. But I am unsure of how to split up vinegar...

CH3COOH + NaOH --> ?

I need help writing out the products...

  1. Remember this. Acid + base = salt + water.
    The H that makes the acetic acid and acid is the last one you wrote in the formula, which I put in bold. The OH from the NaOH then reacts with that to form HOH (H2O--water) and the salt that is left is CH3COONa.
    CH3COOH + HONa --> HOH + CH3COONa
