How much can a air balloon hold?

how much helium can a air balloon hold


How do air balloons lift off from the ground?

Balloons filled with Helium rise because Helium is less dense than normal air. Hot air balloons lift off the ground because heat rises, and when the balloon is full of air of a higher temperature than its surroundings, the balloon will rise.


What is a carbon dioxide balloon?

A balloon with CO2 instead of helium or hydrogen


How much helium would it take to lift the space shuttle into space?

It won't - at some time the balloon would burst or become the same density as the atmosphere, so stop rising. The above answer is correct. At about 110,000 feet or ~ 21+ miles (when the shuttle was well into the stratosphere) the balloon will burst. However to get the space shuttle into the stratosphere it would take 2,029,203,000 liters of helium and would cost approximately $ 146,102,616. Assumptions: Space shuttle weighs: 2,029,203 KG 1 Liter of helium can lift ~ 1 gram. Helium costs approximately 7.2 cents per gram. According to the NASA website it costs $450,000,000 to launch a shuttle. Maybe they should look into using helium to get them the first 20 miles.


What do you think makes balloon stay up?

balloon stay up because of the air inside it. to make the balloon stay up the air should be light. inside the balloons you can find the air we called helium. helium is a light air that makes the balloon stay up. that's why if you blow the balloon it wont float because the air that comes from your mouth is not helium but carbon dioxide and carbon dioxide is heavier compared to helium so it wont float.

Which gas inflates a balloon the longest carbon dioxide or helium and why?

Carbon dioxide will keep a balloon inflated longer than helium will, because its molecules are much larger and therefore less able to escape through the material of which the balloon is made.On the other hand, helium is much lighter so will give a balloon greater lift while it lasts.


How much do helium balloons carry?

How much a helium balloon carries depends on the size of the balloon.


How can you determine if a balloon is filled with helium gas or hydrogen gas?

If you are comparing two balloons side by side, a hydrogen balloon will have more lift than a helium balloon of the same size and construction.If you open the balloons, the hydrogen is flammable, while the helium is not.


How do you make a balloon lift without helium?

There are actually a number of ways to make a balloon lift, without helium. Hydrogen is even less dense than helium (but has the disadvantage of also being highly flammable). And since hot air is less dense than cooler air, you can lift a balloon just by heating air. Since hot air is less expensive than either helium or hydrogen, that is a popular technique.

How many helium balloons can lift up a brick?

depends on how large the balloon is! ;D


Can helium lift 72 pounds into the air?

Yes, if you have enough helium in a balloon that is large enough and strong enough to stand the strains involved.

Why does an air balloon float?

If you mean hot air balloon then it floats because hot air rises because it is less dense and with enough hot air caught in the balloon it can lift create enough lift to take off into the air. If you mean a helium balloon then it rises because helium in the balloon is less dense then the air around it. Since less dense things rise to the top the balloon will float.


What gases lift a balloon into the air?

Anything less dense than air (hydrogen, helium, hot air).


What is the difference between a helium balloon and a hot-air balloon?

A helium balloon does not need energy to rise in the air. A hot air balloon needs fuel to rise in air. That is it needs heat energy to rise in air.i love Pizza squares i hope they put helium in then one dayHelium relies on the fact that helium is lighter than air. Hot air balloons rely on the fact that hot air has less volume than cold air and is lighter than the air around it. hot air balloons use hot air to cause the balloon to lift as helium balloons use a special gas to cause lift
