Purpose: This lab discusses the concept of vehicle air bags as a demonstration of the ideal gas law and gas stoichiometry. Students (that's you) will calculate the exact amounts of acetic acid and sodium hydrogen carbonate necessary to generate enough carbon dioxide to fill an "air bag" to capacity using the current pressure and temperature of the room.
