When carbon dioxide is dissolved in water it is known as carbonation. Gas bubbles are formed during carbonation. The general representation of the reaction is;

CO2 (gas) + H2O ------> H2CO3

H2CO3 is known as carbonic acid. When carbonic acid is dissolved in water it forms;

H2CO3 ------> CO2 + H20

Carbonation is used in the formation of soft drinks. Moreover, this process is also used to lower the PH value of a liquid.
