There is a reaction between sulfuric acid and sodium bicarbonate (also called sodium hydrogen carbonate and baking soda). This reaction produces sodium sulfate, carbon dioxide, and water. The general equation for this reaction is:

acid + carbonate #rarr# salt + carbon dioxide + water

The balanced chemical equation for this reaction is:

#"H"_2"SO"_4("aq")# + #"2NaHCO"_3"(aq")"# #rarr# #"Na"_2"SO"_4("aq")# + #"2CO"_2("g")# + #"2H"_2"O"("l")#
