This may seem a trivial request of mine, but it is a major part of my health regime,
I add Bicarb (Sodium Bicarbonate - NaHCO3) to Sparkling Water (H2O + CO2 (bubbles) + a weak solution of Carbonic Acid - H2CO3)
There is an effervescent reaction. But I cannot find an explanation of this - using chemical formulae - online.
I do this a lot of this for health reasons - with the approval of my GP. It changes my pH levels from acidic to alkaline/neutral.
So I'd like to know the gas that is released, and the residual solution.
