Vinegar = CH3COOH

Baking soda = NaHCO3

The reaction between vinegar and baking soda is a double displacement reaction. Vinegar reacts with baking soda to form sodium acetate and carbonic acid. Carbonic acid is unstable so, it decomposes into carbon dioxide and water. The balanced equation for the reaction is;

CH3COOH + NaHCO3 ------ > CH3COONa + H2CO3

CH3COOH + NaHCO3 ------ > CH3COONa + H2O + CO2
