Nope. Tasks can keep running, even after they've triggered the next task.If the balloon is still inflating after it has triggered the next task, would that count as a parallel?
Vinegar can have a very wide range of concentrations of acetic acid. Run of the mill vinegar (the kind you buy at the supermarket) is distilled so it can be any concentration that is convenient and safe. 4-14% is common.Here are my calculations:
Vinegar = 5% acetic acid by volume
1 L of Vinegar = 1000 mL of vinegar= 50 mL of acetic acid= 50mL * 1.049 g/mL= 52.49 g of acetic acid
Molar mass of acetic acid is 60.05g/mol, so there is 0.874 moles of acetic acid per L of vinegar.
There is 1 mole of acetic acid in 1.144 L of vinegar.
You need 2 moles of acetic acid per one mol of baking soda. So the ratio should be 2.288 L vinegar/ 52.45 g baking soda.
This in turn will produce one mole of CO2 gas, which at STP would be 22.4 L.
In addition there is nothing in the rules that say the reaction must be aqueous.The rules only say that the only liquids you can have are water and vinegar. They say nothing about dumping two solids into the water that then dissolve and react. Technically, any aqueous chemical reaction is legal, as long as it's safe.
Also, vinegar is an acid and can be mixed with more than just baking soda.
