You can't expect more than a 20- to 25-degree differential with a standard home central AC unit. Older, less-efficient units will struggle to reduce indoor temps even the 20 degrees below outdoor temps.

The outdoor portion of the central ac unit is what gives up the heat from indoors, so it has to be outside. For a more thorough explanation see the question: How does air conditioning work.

If your air conditioner is running outside by not blowing cold air inside through your vent, your indoor coil is frozen. You will need to turn everything off and allow the unit to thaw out.

What would cause a central air conditioner to make a dripping sound in the inside unit and leak water?

When air is cooled the water in it comes out (like mist forming on the outside of a class filled with cold coke) and this happens in the air conditioner. Normally the dripping water is drained way to the outside (or a drain) by a pipe. If the pipe gets blocked the water will overflow and the conditioner will leak water - get it serviced.

you might need freon in the air condition.

Is it possible to have freon in vapor form in an air conditioner that is not running?

Depending on the the out side temperature even when the air conditioner sits idle, the refrigerant inside the air conditioner is changing from a liquid to a vapor .

Basically the freezer does work to keep the inside at a lower temperature than outside. The coolant is compressed, and uses absorbed heat to expand again.

What temperature must it be outside for a balloon to float?

Outside temperature is largely immaterial. It is really the difference between the temperature inside and outside of the balloon envelope that generates the lift. If both are exactly the same, then the balloon will simply fall under gravity -- it has no buoyancy. As the inside temperature increases, so does its buoyancy. Eventually, the difference will be sufficient to overcome gravity, and the greater the difference, the faster it will rise. When the optimum altitude is achieved, the air inside is allowed to cool to an optimum level to maintain that altitude; the optimum temperature will vary according to the outside temperature and the weight of the balloon. The outside temperature will vary according to altitude, as will air pressure outside of the balloon, therefore there is no single answer to the question. It is the difference in temperature that is important, not the actual temperature.
