Reaction between Vinegar and lime juice makes carbon dioxide.How?

Lime juice contains Calcium Oxide and which if kept gets converted to calcium hydroxide and which further reacts with the carbon dioxide and gets converted to calcium carbonate.

This calcium carbonate reacts with vinegar ( acetic acid) to produce carbon dioxide.

Vinegar(Acetic acid) + Baking soda(Sodium hydrogencarbonate)-

Carbon-di-oxide+ other substances

The reaction between carbon-di-oxide and lime water is as follows:

Carbon-di-oxide(CO2)+lime water - Calcium Carbonate+water

When CO2 is passed through lime water calcium carbonate is formed which makes lime water milky.The turning of lime water into milky is a test of carbon-di-oxide.
