Vinegar is the type of liquid which consist of acetic acid ( Ethanoic acid ). It is basically produced by the process of fermentation of ethanol through ethanoic acid in the presence of bacteria.

Reaction involved in the formation of Vinegar:

CH₃CH₂OH + O₂ → CH₃COOH + H₂O

Fermentation is the process of converting sugar into alcohol. But if the cork of the bottle open for sometimes then there is a second type of fermentation happened.  In this process, alcohol is changes into acetic acid, so the main compound which formed is vinegar.

Uses of Vinegar are:
