Solution

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:

  1. It is used in the preparation of the food.
  2. It is used in pickling.
  3. It is used as folk medicine material.
  4. It is used as a household cleaning agent

Gasohol is a mixture of 90% gasoline and 10% of anhydrous Alcohol (Ethyl Alcohol). It is commonly known as alternative fuel or motor fuel.

Benefits of gasohol are:-

  1. It is cheaper.
  2. It is eco-friendly.
  3. It has higher performance.
  4. It is used as a cleaner for the environment.
  5. It doesn't freeze in typical conditions.

Uses of gasohol are:

  1. It is used in a fuel or petroleum Industry
  2. It is used in an automobiles industry
  3. It is used as common gasoline or hydrous around the world.
  4. It is used as a flexible fuel vehicle, because it do not freeze in typical conditions.
