How does the amount of baking soda mixed with vinegar affect the volume of gas produced per 10 seconds?

A reaction is when (usually) a solute acts on a solvent to create a reaction. An example of a reaction is an explosion, Here we will be using baking soda and vinegar which are our two components which will cause for a reaction to take place. Reactions can be affected by several things such as temperature, concentration and the presence or absence of a catalyst which is a substance which can increase the rate of reaction.
To determine the rate of reaction there are many method to be used for example, measuring the mass after the product has been added and measuring the difference in mass on the duration of a digital scale. Another method, which will be used in this experiment is using a gas syringe to measure the volume of the gas which has been produced. The cylinder inside, will be pushed out to show a quantitative presentation of the volume produced by the reaction.

Hypothesis
I predict that the more baking powder added to the vinegar, the more reaction will take place causing for more gas to be produced per 10 seconds. There will be a gradual decrease in difference between volume in gas per 10 seconds over the duration of time.
I predict that the more baking powder is added, the more gas will be produced because there is more vinegar to react with baking powder 
The chemical name for baking powder is sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and vinegar is acetic acid
