When water mixes with carbon dioxide in the air, what is formed?

H2O + CO2 --> H2CO3

carbonic acid

I don't think this is correct because there is no aid in co2. It just ends up to be CO2 in liquid form. Basically water with air is carbonated water.

that is definitely correct.
copy and paste it into google if you want an explanation.
