Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate, NaHCO3) reacts with
acids in foods to form carbonic acid 1H2CO32, which in
turn decomposes to water and carbon dioxide gas. In a
cake batter, the CO21g2 forms bubbles and causes the cake
to rise. (a) A rule of thumb in baking is that 1/2 teaspoon of
baking soda is neutralized by one cup of sour milk. The acid
component in sour milk is lactic acid, CH3CH1OH2COOH.
Write the chemical equation for this neutralization reaction.
