  Carbonic acid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carbon dioxide dissolved in water is in equilibrium with carbonic acid:
This figure is often quoted as the dissociation constant of carbonic acid, although this is ambiguous: it might better be referred to as the acidity constant of carbon dioxide, as it is particularly useful for calculating the pH of CO solutions.
Pure carbonic acid is predicted to be stable in the gas phase, in the absence of water, with a calculated half-life of 180,000 years.

 Carbonic anhydrase - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carbonic anhydrase (carbonate dehydratase) is a family of metalloenzymes (enzymes that contain one or more metal atoms as a functional component of the enzyme) that catalyze the rapid interconversion of carbon dioxide and water into carbonic acid, protons, and bicarbonate ions.
The of reaction rate of carbonic anhydrase is among the fastest of all enzymes, and its rate is typically limited by the diffusion rate of its substrates.
A novel evolutionary lineage of carbonic anhydrase (epsilon class) is a component of the carboxysome shell.

 Acid Rain
As is seen in Table I, carbon dioxide (CO) is present in the greatest concentration and therefore contributes the most to the natural acidity of rainwater.
Carbon dioxide, produced in the decomposition of organic material, is the primary source of acidity in unpolluted rainwater.
Although sulfuric acid may be produced naturally in small quantities from biological decay and volcanic activity (Figure 1), it is produced almost entirely by human activity, especially the combustion of sulfur-containing fossil fuels in power plants.

 Re: why does carbonic acid decompose when it is created with acetic acid?
according to the chemical equation the reaction of the acetic acid and calcium carbonate of the egg shell produces calcium acetate and carbonic acid, which then decomposes into water and carbon dioxide.
my theory is that the energy given off by the spontaneous reaction of the calcium carbonate and acetic acid is enough to raise the produced carbonic acid to its activation energy for decomposing.
Since the solubility of CO is only 1.45 g/L (about 0.03 mol/L) at 25° C, most of the carbonic acid formed by dissolving an eggshell in vinegar will escape into the atmosphere.

The equilibrium on the left is an acid-base reaction that is written in the reverse format from Equation 3.

Equation 11 does not meet the strict definition of a Henderson-Hasselbach equation, because this equation takes into account a non-acid-base reaction (i.e., the dissociation of carbonic acid to carbon dioxide and water), and the ratio in parentheses is not the concentration ratio of the acid to the conjugate base.
